Domain Mega Spileo

History

Official references about the monastery vineyard exist from 1550. The domain and winery were being used by monks for viticulture and harvesting of grapes. The monks would transport the grape must by mules to the monastery's famous cellar, where they would decant it to 5001t wooden barrels. Local workers were involved in this process, helping the monks and glorifying the Great Vineyard "Megali Ambelos" and its wine. At the end of the 80th decade, the viticulture of grapes stopped due to gradual leaving of monks from the monastery. 

Location

The Great Vineyard is located on the 21st km of Diakofto-Kalavrita Road at the place Lovas on plateau above the picturesque Vouraikos canyon at 800 m height.

Viticulture

The renovation of the vineyard and planting of new vines took place in 1999 with the long-term tenancy of Mega Spileo’s abbey. Linear vineries of late germinative cycle planted with local and international varieties Mavrodafne, Mavro, Kalavritino, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Lagorthi, Assyrtiko, Malagouzia & Riesling.
Plant density: 4100 plants per ha.
Ground: Sandy with argil and gravel.
Altitude: 780-880 m.

Vinification

Prefermented extractions at low temperatures for 24-48 hours, followed by red classic vinification with long extractions. Malolactic fermentation and ageing in new oak barrels (85% French and 15% American) for more than 24 months. Reductant ageing in bottle for 24 months at least.
