PELOPONNESE

The morphology of the Peloponnese could be like that of Greece on a smaller scale. The west coast is mostly mountainous, like Epirus, and the rest of the land resembles that of central Greece. Most of the production is concentrated in the north (Patra). However, winemaking has increased in central Peloponnesos (Nemea, Mantinia) due to the higher altitude and climate. Peloponnesos is responsible for 25% of Greek wines produced.


Nemea: The appellation of superior quality is comprised of 16 villages and was established in 1971. The red variety of Aghiorgitiko, southern Greece's best, dominates in this area and has adapted perfectly to the area in the last 500 years.

Mantinia
: There are two municipalities and 9 villages which comprise this area's appellation, established in 1971. 70% of the 500 hectares are planted with the fruity Moshofilero, and the rest with Asproudes, which is also vinified in the appellation wines. Most of the vines are grown at an altitude of 600 meters which means that the crush takes place in late September.

Patra
: Located in the north of Peloponnesos, this area has about 4,000 hectares of vines which include the varieties of Mavrodaphne, Roditis and Sideritis. The two main producers here are Achaia-Clauss, established in the mid-nineteenth century and the Patras Co-operative. As in Cephalonia, the Mavrodaphne grape is used primarily for the vinification of sweet red wines.
