"A Most Popular Wine Brand in Wine & Spirit's 22nd Annual Restaurant Poll"
Domaine Skouras was established in 1986 by Dijon-trained winemaker George Skouras in Pyrgela, Argos, a quaint village nestled in the Nemea region of the Peloponnese. George is widely considered the “Sassicaia” of Greece, the leader of the modern Greek wine revolution. Working with both indigenous varieties as well as international varieties, Skouras started producing very high quality Greek wines in the late 1980’s.
The first bottling of the Megas Oenos, his flagship wine, launched in 1988 was the first wine in Greece to blend Aghiorghitiko with Cabernet Sauvignon. Skouras also boasts one of the highest red wine vineyards in all of Europe, planted at over 3,400 feet. Domaine Skouras sources grapes from its own vineyards and from dedicated grape-growers in the region and is today at the forefront of Greek estates. Demand for these terroir-driven and estate-bottled wines is strong in both Greece and around the world.
