The Greek winery "Domaine Spiropoulos" exists since 1860. The vineyards with about 200 hectares are located 650 meters above sea level on the plateau of Mantinia in the north of the island Peloponnese, Exactly on this place wine was operated already in the antique one. This is proven by a wine container made of solid marble found in the winery's cellar during restoration work with more than 1,000 liters capacity, which is more than 2,000 years old. In the early 1990s, the three brothers Nondas, Yannis and Robert have reorganized the winery and rely fully on organic farming according to ecological criteria in accordance with EU directives. There are the indigenous grape varieties Agiorgitiko, Glikerithram, Lagorthi, Mavrudi and the Appellation variety Moschofilero, as well as cultivating international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc. Worth mentioning wines are the OPAP white wine "Orino" (varietal from Moschofilero) and the red country wine "Porfyros" (Agiorgitiko, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot and matured until 16 months in oak barrels).
