2007 Skouras Megas Oenos (750ml)

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 "Sassicia" 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.

The Peloponnese-rich in ancient ruins from its glorious past, has been cultivated with vineyards for many a century. The north-east ,home to Mycenae and Epidaurus, is blessed vineyard territory. Indigenous grape varieties in Nemea, Argolida, Arcadia and Mantinia include Roditis and Moscofilero (white varieties) and Saint George (aka Aghiorghitiko, red variety). Cosmopolitan varieties ,Chardonnay, Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, are also cultivated and display strong terroir.

Skouras Winery sources grapes from its own vineyards and from dedicated grape-growers in the region.

Today Skouras Winery is at the forefront of Greek estates, full of momentum and with a sharp focus on its future. Demand for its terroir-driven and estate-bottled wines is consistent both at home and around the world. For what makes these wines so popular is the fact that Skouras does not compromise quality or craftsmanship. In fact, there is always something better, something more, with each and every vintage, for each and every product. Skouras Winery
