Monemvasia Wines

Viticultural area with great historical interest and glorious past is Monemvasia. The Monembasios wine was notorious as Malvasia for 5 centuries in international markets of East and West. The production began before the 13th century Byzantine Monemvasia and continued in Crete occupied by Venice until the mid-17th century. The trade of this wine, with the historical designation of origin, acquired such dimensions that its reputation was not altered through the centuries and was spread not only by word of mouth, but was also maintained by commercial acts of the period. Today the production area of the wine PDO Monemvasia-Malvasia extends to the land circumference of the former municipalities of Monemvasia, Asopos, Voion and Molai of Laconia. For the white wine, at least 51% grapes of the variety of Monemvasia are used and a variable percentage of varieties of Asirtiko, Kidonitsa, Roditis, Fileri, Athiri, Aidani, Petroulianos and Asproudes. Regarding the red PDO Monemvasia, is based on varieties, Thrapsa, Mavroudi, Agiorgitiko and Mandilaria, proving both, white and red wine, through their interesting varietal composition, that the varietal wealth of this place with the mediterranean climate, is remarkable.
