Giannikos Winery, an Organic Family-Owned Winery on Peloponnese
Wafted by the cool breezes of Mycenae, Giannikos Winery is a family winery based in the Corinth region of Peloponnese. The vineyards are located on two sites, one in Corinth near the winery facility and the second one in Mycenae around an ancestral estate. Giannikos Winery has been a renowned wine producer for more than a century. The estate’s organic wines have won many national and international awards & medals worldwide.
The Giannikos family first planted its first vineyards in 1896 in the rich soils of Mycenae.
Established in the Time of the First International Olympic Games
Established by their forefathers, Giannikos Winery history dates back to when Greece organized its first modern International Olympic games. The Giannikos Family first planted its first vineyards in 1896 in the rich soils of Mycenae. For many years, the winemaking family continued the legacy until the old buildings caught fire.
Driven by the passion of preserving their traditions, Michalis Giannikos rebuilt the modern winery in 1996 on the slopes of medieval Corinth. The winery underwent a massive renovation in 2009 and started exporting the wines internationally. Today, about 75% of the total wine production has been delivered around the globe.
Roditis, Agiorgitiko, and Malagouzi as well as International Varieties
Giannikos Winery focuses on the production of single varietal wines, made from the family-owned grapes. The vineyards are extended over eight hectares, where the owners cultivate a broad range of vines, including international varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay, and Viognier. But their flagship wines still come from Greek grape varieties, including Roditis, Agiorgitiko, and Malagouzia. Using these selectively picked berries by organic means, the estate produces delicious red and white wines, along with rich-quality rosé and dessert wines.
