About the winery
Yiannis Tselepos studied oenology in Burgundy where he learned the art of fine wine making. After his return in Greece in 1980 he was one of the pioneers behind the rejuvenation of the Moshofilero variety in Mantinia, which today is one of the most important Greek varieties and one of the top 5 exported around the world. He and his wife Amalia established their own vineyard in Arcadia, at the eastern foothills of Mount Parnonas, at an altitude of 750 meters. The poor rocky clay soils in this location combined with the area’s microclimate offer high quality premium wines with a unique personality and unforeseen aromas that make a world of difference for this great terroir and Greek winemaking. Domaine Tselepos cultivates 400 acres of privately owned land and every year adds approximately another 200 acres from cooperating producers since demand for the estates wine is steadily growing in Greece and abroad with exports experiencing an incredible rise during the last years. Beyond the wines that come from the indigenous Moschofilero and Agiorgitiko grape varieties a number of international varieties such as Chadonnay, Gewürztraminer Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are cultivated with an eye for the global markets.
