Organic wine production is a growing sector of Greek viticulture. Domaine Spiropoulos was established in 1870. The vineyard site is located in Mantinia on a plateau that is 650 meters above sea level. In the 1970’s the Spiropoulos family uprooted and replanted their vineyards with younger vines. An experimental vineyard was also created to save local varieties that were nearing extinction. Since 1993, Domaine Spiropoulos has received numerous medals for its organically grown wines. The Domaine is located in Mantinia, an area in the Peloponnese region. The International Federation of Organic Agricultural Movements has also certified the Domaine’s grapes as a product of organic farming. For more info please visit www.domainspiropoulos.com
