George Skouras, who trained as a winemaker in Dijon and began his career in Cephallonia, moved to Nemea in 1986, where he created his own winery and became influential in the Greek wine renaissance. He makes wine from both indigenous (particularly aghiorghitiko) and international varieties (loved by the domestic market) in a state of the art winery outside Argos. They own 40 hectares and 40 more under contract. His Cuvee Prestige wines are models of their kind and his top wines, Nemea Grande Cuvee and Megas Oinos are world class.

Generous, expressive Greek red that shows you can achieve the sensation of ripeness without much in the way of residual sugar. Good for a hearty stew.
Deep crimson. Round and dense and polished. Should resonate with those more familiar with non-Greek wines. GV
