Moraitis family winery is located in Naoussa in the island of Paros, by the beach of Agioi Anargyroi. In 1910, Manolis Moraitis, grand father of the family, started operating the winery. He cultivated his own vineyards to make his wine, while he, also, gathered grapes from other producers of the island. He released his wine in oak barrels and exported it to several parts of Greece. Subsequently, the second generation undertook the winery and the father of the family, Theodoros Moraitis, continued with the viticulture, wine making and exports, till 1967 when he bottled, for the first time, his wine. In 1980 the third generation took over, represented by Manolis Moraitis junior, who puts his own mark in the history of the winery. He renovated the winery and introduced modern machinery.
