Nestled in Olympia, the Birthplace of Civilization and Olympic Games
Just a short drive away from the heart of Ancient Peloponnese, the Olympia Land Estate is an old family-owned winery located in the small hamlet of Koskina. Following their ancestors’ traditions, the winemaking family has been producing wines in small quantities since the early 2000s. The winery underwent immense modernization in 2008. Today, the winery is famous for its wines and olive oil, made within the PGI status.
Revival of the Ancient Vineyards
In 1985, the fourth-generation winemakers decided to restore the estate-owned vineyards and replanted the plots with Greek and French grape varietals. Mainly, the winery focuses on the cultivation of Moschofilero and Roditi. But apart from that, they grow Chardonnay and Assyrtiko (whites), along with Merlot, Syrah, Agiorgitiko, and Avgoustiatis (reds) with complete respect to Mother Nature. In total, the company owns around 100 acres of land surrounding the river Kladeos.
Winery Structure and its Features
Olympia Land Estate consists of two buildings, bordered by lush countryside. The first structure is the main winemaking house comprising state-of-the-art machinery to produce quality wines. There is an old stone-built mansion with an underground cellar in the second building, where vintages are aged and refined under controlled temperature conditions. It also has the finest tasting room, where hospitality meets traditions. Guests are welcome here for exquisite wine tasting activities.
