Skouras

Skouras
George Skouras, proprietor, oenologist and winemaker of Domain Skouras, was born in Argos, a city in Peloponnese that has been inhabited for over 3000 years. In the early eighties, he studied agriculture in Dijon, France where a local winemaker introduced him to Burgundy wine. Impressed and inspired, his Dionysian element took over, and he switched to oenology. As a Dijon University graduate he worked for French, Italian and Greek wineries. In 1986 Skouras established his first winery in Pyrghella, a small town near Argos. In 1988 he launched his pioneering Megas Oenos wine, a first-of-a-kind red cuvee, an impressive blend of the local Aghiorgitiko and the international Cabernet Sauvignon with illustrious results. Megas Oenos (great wine) became known as a high quality wine in the Greek market and abroad. In 1996 he built a winery in the bucolic village of Ghymno at 700m altitude, in the designated Nemean Appellation of Origin area. Ghymno, the roof garden of Greek vineyards, is home to 50-year old Aghiorgitiko vineyards. Grapes from these vineyards are used in the Megas Oenos Red. Over the last fifteen years, Skouras has brought his domain to the forefront of Greek estates. Increased demand for his terroir-driven and estate-bottled wines has prompted the building of a new winery and reception center near Argos. It will be an ultimate balance of location, design, efficiency and technology. Domaine Skouras sources grapes from its own vineyards and from dedicated grape-growers in the region with whom they work closely to assure variety integrity and to secure top quality. Apart from local indigenous varieties such as Aghiorgitiko (aka St. George), Roditis and Moschofilero, we are producing wines from the international varietals which display strong terroir.
