About Kalogris Organic Winery
Kalogris Organic Winery is a historical small family winery in the famous Mantineia plateau, the birthplace of the gray-skin Moschofilero grape.
Moschofilero is potentially linked to the “smokey vines” of ancient Greece and is part of the very adaptive “Filery” family of grapes. Moschofilero is the most aromatic in the family, and the family is almost exclusively focused on this grape.
The winery was established in 1980, when Evangelos’ grandfather handed over to him the traditional family house, under the condition that he would convert it to a winery that would accept visitors. The family traces its vine growing past in the area, all the way back to 1870. Evangelos converted the old house to an organic stone-built winery, which he runs today with his wife and two daughters.
The vineyard measures 3 hectares, and labor is performed manually by the family. Winemaking has always been traditional, with wild fermentation and mild intervention.
