The Spiropoulos vineyards

Domaine Spiropoulos owns vineyards in the Mantinia and Nemea Appellation zones (VQPRD) of the Peloponnese. Grapes are hand-picked and taken under climate controlled conditions to their modern winery facilities in ancient Mantinia. There, the grapes are crushed and vinified under strictly controlled conditions. The wines are then aged and matured in underground cellars in stainless steel tanks or French oak barrels of 225-300lt. A final quality control takes place during the bottling stage guaranteeing the release of the highest quality products to the market.
