The Greek winery in the municipality of Selinous near Corinth in the east of the island Peloponnese was founded in 1989 by Bordeaux graduate Anghelos Rouvalis. The first wine was produced a year later. In 1994, a new winery was put into operation. Since this year, the oenologist Yannis Karabatsos works at the winery. The vineyards are located near the coast at an altitude of 500 meters with 850 meters over the Gulf of Corinth. The varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Lagorthi, Merlot, Riesling, Roditis, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Volitsa are cultivated.
