Porto Carras is one of the most beautiful estates in Greece, having at the same time one of the richest histories. The estate was a dream of the ship-owner Yiannis Carras, when he came across the Toroneos gulf on a cruise to Mount Athos in 1963. Professor Emile Peynaud, Evangelos Gerovassiliou and other more or less famous “heroes” worked and produced some of the most important Greek wines at the time, such as the 1975 Porfirogenitos, 1993 Chateau Porto Carras, some Syrah and Malagousia 1994 vintages. It goes without saying that the spectacular Sithonia terroir contributed to the greatness of these wines.
After various blows in the 90's, the estate passed to Stegos family, who managed to slowly but gradually regain its lost glow. Malagouzia continues to be one of the best in the country, while the chateau Porto Carras that comes out in the market ten years after harvesting is one of the most undervalued wines one may find. It could cost at least three times more. Today, the "Meliton Slopes" vineyard is a model of organic viticulture being the largest single organic vineyard in Greece and one of the largest in Europe.
