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. Before that he had worked as an oenologist at some wineries. In the beginning, 6,000 bottles of wine were produced there every year. A second winery was opened in 1996 in Gymno in the appellation Nemea built. In 2003, the new headquarters in Malandreni, southeast of Nemea, were moved into and the Pyrghela site was abandoned. The vineyards are located 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. Around 750,000 bottles of wine are produced annually, half of which is exported (240,000 to Germany).
