Wineries – Nemea

Agiorgitiko vinification begins by carefully de-stemming grapes and collecting the must to stainless tanks, where temperature is stabilized to 26-27 Celsius degrees; it is afterwards extracted and fermented without added yeast or other additives of any kind, as a result of organic production. This process lasts for approximately 7-10 days, and we afterwards collect the extracted wine destined for bottling and maturation.

Fresh organic wine is stored for at least 8-12 months in stainless tanks and for at least another 12 months in French oak barrels for maturation, in conditions of controlled humidity and temperature at the underground facilities of the winery. The end product afterwards acquires a composite, yet balanced character with spice, cinnamon, vanilla and dark fruit aromas.
