The Greek winery was founded in 1986 by Dijon graduate George Skouras in the municipality of Pyrghela near the town of Argos on the island Peloponnese founded. Previously, he had worked as an oenologist at some wineries. At first, 6,000 bottles of wine were produced there every year. A second winery was then in 1996 in Gymno in the appellation Nemea built. In 2003, the newly built headquarters in Malandreni, southeast of Nemea, was moved to and the site Pyrghela abandoned. The vineyards are located there in 700 meters above sea level. They are planted with the main variety Agiorgitiko, as well as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot, Moschofilero, Roditis and Viognier. The premium wines are Megas Oenos red (Cabernet Sauvignon, Agiorgitiko), Megas Oenos white (Moschofilero), Cuvée Prestige (Roditis, Moschofilero), Nemea Agiorgitiko, Nemea Grande Cuvée (Agiorgitiko) and Viognier Eclectique. Every year around 750,000 bottles of wine are produced, of which half are exported (240,000 to Germany).
