About Kitma Tselepos
Founded in 1989, the estate is located in the region of Tegea, Arcadia in the Peloponnese. The estate’s vineyards lie at an altitude of 750 meters and boast sandy clay soil, with schist and limestone. The main goal of the estate since its foundation was the production of the highest quality wines, while at the same time trying to point out the enormous potential of the indigenous varieties and of each microclimate (terroir).
Giannis Tselepos studied oenology at the University of Dijon and graduated in 1979. After working in several Burgundy wineries, he returned to Greece and settled in Mantinia, Arcadia in the Peloponnese working as a consultant and winemaker. He founded his own wine-making company in 1989 and is currently its CEO.
Moschofilero is a pink-skinned, aromatic grape variety grown mainly on Greece’s Peloponnese peninsula. Here, it is the main constituent in fresh, light Mantinia wines, whose aromatic character and floral, grapey flavors often bear comparisons to wines made from Traminer and Muscat.
It has been said that there is no single Moschofilero, only many mutations of the ancient “Fileri” grape family from the Peloponnese. The -filero suffix lends itself to many varieties grown in the area that have a similar DNA makeup to Moschofilero.
These range in color from green to black, with considerable differences in sugar content and acidity levels. Moschofilero is by far the most common of these, but even within the variety itself, there is a lot of variation.
