The history of NOPERA wines and philosophy behind them starts in the 19th century when the Nopera family leaves Malta and migrates to the island of Samos. After a few years, it creates a sweet wine of high quality, fresh, from the variety of white muscat. At the time this wine succeeds even to export to reputed clients such as the French company Noilly Pratt Marseille, known to this day for the unique vermouth quality that it produces.
Evangelos Mytilineos initially and today his son Nicholas, a Nopera family descendant, along with Yiannis Kostakis, a wine grower and producer with experience of three generations, created a model organic and biodynamic vineyard in order to promote the complexity of the local terroir and to restore its former glory.
NOPERA has three privately owned 40 acres vineyards, in different regions of Samos, where there are vines with average age of 20 years. The diversity of the three terroirs allows to have a greater complexity in morphological, flavoring and aromatic sense. The applied organic and biodynamic techniques allow minimal interference between nature and the vine. Thus the plant is more resistant to diseases, increases naturally sugars and acids, and can give 100% identity to the final products, Nopera wines.
