As lovers and importers of Greek wines, we have searched for and tasted the best wines preferably made from Greek grape varieties during our long quests throughout Greece. Our range currently consists of more than 80 labels, from simple pouring wines to very special ones.
Are you looking for a nice Greek wine? Our assortment has something for everyone: from simple wines to very special ones with several years of aging. Our range of Greek wines consists of many special Greek grape varieties such as Xinomavro, Roditis, Malagousia, Assyrtiko, Moschofilero as well as the well known Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay. Most Greek grape varieties are indigenous, which means that they cannot grow anywhere else in the world. This makes it possible for our Greek wineries to produce exclusive wines.
Our range includes the most famous wines from the largest winemakers in Greece such as Alpha Estate, but we also like to export wines from local winemakers to the Netherlands. This way, we can introduce the Dutch consumer to a unique wine. One of these wines is Avarino from winemaker Nestor. Extra special: this vineyard is located 20 km from our home village. We know many of the wine products well ourselves, having worked together for several years. We regularly visit the plantations and wineries to maintain our relationships and to taste the (new) wines.
Beautiful Greece offers a climate that is very suitable for growing grapes, which means that a large variety of grape varieties are cultivated. On the Peloponnese peninsula, where most of our wines come from, many wines are produced. The annual wine production here is over 1.5 million hectolitres. The history of wine here goes back to the Middle Ages: the first wine was made here about 7,000 years ago. Nemea is known worldwide as the best Greek wine region, with very good wineries.
The Greeks prefer to serve their wine from a red wine jug, a κατρουτσο. In the regular tavernas in Greece, wine glasses are not served as we know them in the Netherlands, but small traditional wine glasses. We also offer these wine cans and wine glasses in our range.
We would like to help you find the wine that suits your dish or taste. That's why we have added informative videos to all our wines, telling you more about the wines and how you can best combine them. You can also always call us for appropriate advice.
Agiorgitiko is the quality grape variety for red wines from the area of Nemea, southwest of the city of Corinth in the Peloponnese. The Nemea plateau lies between 250 and 700 metres above sea level and has a stony, calcareous soil. The history of wine making in Nemea dates back 4000 years. The name Agiorgitiko comes from the church in the village which is called "Agios Georgios" (Saint George). Agiorgitiko produces beautiful, full-bodied wines with pleasant tannins and characteristic aromas. Wines from Agiorgitiko can be matured for several years. The better ones have one year in wood and one year in bottle. Our winemakers from this area are Apostolos Lykos and Nikos Lavazanis.
After the Agiorgitiko, the Xinomavro is the most common and most drunk grape variety from Greece. The growing area is mainly in Naoussa in the province of Macedonia, the land of Alexander the Great and his father King Philip, who certainly contributed to the development of the wine culture in that area. This variety produces beautiful, light red tannic wines that can be aged for a long time. When aged in wood, this results in beautifully soft wines. Some examples within our range are Xinomavro Alpha Estate, Little Ark red and Axia red.
