Wine Tasting in Messinia

Wine Tasting in Messinia

Discover quality wines from 35-year-old vineyards!

A 3-hour guided tour of a winery in a small village of Messinia. Passed down from father to son, this family-owned business has stayed true to tradition, with minimum intervention, to ensure quality grapes and wine. Cultivating Greek and European grape varieties, the winery produces some of the best local vintages you’ll have the chance to enjoy.

 

 

Where

You’ll visit a family-owned winery located in a small village in Messinia, just 35 km (20 mi) outside of Kalamata.

The private vineyards occupy an area of around 15 acres and produce 5 varieties: Roditis, Carignan, Tempranillo, Merlot and Chardonnay.

The vineyards were first cultivated in the 1980s and wine production started in the mid-2010s.
