In Agios Vasilios Corinthia, just 25 kilometers from the PDO zone of Nemea is the Manolakis domaine, with vineyards located at an altitude of 300m to 450m. The involvement with nature and vines always existed in the family, but Dimitris and Thanasis' love for wine also came to create the desire to produce their own wine.
So starting with a small unit of wine production from organic crops and with a lot of personal work they managed to make ¨the dream...reality¨. The beginning was made with small areas of Rhodite and Agiorgitiko, and over the years Malagouzia, Assyrtiko, Moschofilero, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties were added.
The new additions to the product line are the semi-sparkling Eros and Elxis. Their enchanting bubbles make everyone fall in love with them.
The will to meet the needs of all consumers brought the idea of ¨vegan¨ and so the team of the estate decided that the new M series should also be vegan friendly. So nothing containing products of animal origin is added throughout the winemaking process.
For the domaine, the assurance of the quality of the products was crucial from the start. For this reason, all hygiene and quality assurance rules that are subject to the ISO 22000 standard are used.
The competitions in which it participates are always a great challenge for the domaine. And not without reason as it has been distinguished with gold and silver awards at the MUNDUS VINI and MEDITERRANEAN TASTE AWARDS competitions.
Always with the family as its pillar, the estate team tries to evolve, passing on the knowledge and know-how to the new generation of the family. So they all work together and the little ones learn from the big ones... but also vice versa!!
When love for farming and family becomes
George Skouras was born in Argos, one of the oldest towns of Europe with a 3,000 years long tradition of wine and culture.
His long-held vision, the creation of Domaine Skouras materialized in 1986. Initially, the small wine-making facility was in Pyrgela, a small village on the outskirts of Argos. The next logical step was the creation of a boutique winery in the Nemea Appellation area, in the village of Gimno.
The region of Nemea and the Argolida highlands is blessed viti-vinicultural land.
Domaine Skouras is located in the Northeastern Peloponnese, in Argolida, close to the provinces of Corinthia and Arcadia, just a few kilometres from Argos, in the village of Malandreni.
The winery is situated within the Nemea zone, the largest and possibly the most exciting Protected Designation of Origin (PDO) for red wines in Greece. Mantinia, another important PDO region for white wines, is in close proximity, while the surrounding areas have excellent terroirs, although not of PDO status. Across all of these locations, Domaine Skouras owns a number of very interesting vineyards.
