WINE INFORMATION

Located  in  Nemea,  Greece,  Domaine  Skouras  was  founded  in  1986   by  Greek  oenologist George  Skouras.    After  training  at  University  of   Dijon,  in  Burgundy,  France,  George gained winemaking  experience   throughout  France,  Italy  and  Greece.    He  eventually  settled  down,  moving  back  to  his  homeland  in  the  late  1980s  to  produce  wines   using  indigenous Greek varieties  as well as international ones.  

Nemea  is  a  region  rich  with  wine  history.    Archeological  excavations   have  revealed evidence  of  winemaking  in  there  from  more  than  3500  years  ago!  

This rosé is made in the traditional Greek style of blending red grapes (Agiorghitiko), and white grapes (Moscofilero). The Aghiorgitiko grapes are grown in Nemea while the Moscofilero grapes are grown on the high plateau of Mantineia. The red grapes are macerated for 24-48 hours before fermentation alongside the Moscofilero in stainless steel tanks. The malolactic fermentation is stopped.
