The Papagiannakos Winery in Markopoulos is in the Mesogeia region of Attica, an area with a rich grape-growing tradition. The facility reflects the ecological sensitivities of the winemaker and owner of the first bioclimatic winery in Greece.
Growing up around the family winery, where 100% of the vinification used the Savatiano variety, Vassilis Papagiannakos had the opportunity to experience impressive harvests which led him to believe in the potential of the variety. The knowledge and experience of centuries that his family had gained in grape cultivation, the climate and terroir of the region, and the acclimation of the variety to them are all factors that have combined with modern vinificaiton methods to produce excellent results, borne out by the continuous recognition of the winery’s products.
Another white variety, Malagousia, later became the winery’s focus and its planting resulted in wines with particular aromatic character that highlighted each of the variety’s characteristics in the best possible way. The Malagousia variety found its ideal home in the privately owned vineyard of the winery in Markopoulos, aided by the exceptional terroir of the Attica vineyard. As for the red wines, chief among them are the Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties.
The goal of the Papagiannakos Winery is to produce wines with the seal of quality and character that reflect the personality of the producer and his efforts and will make anyone who purchases them pleased with their selection.
