Our story begins long before the creation of Domaine Skouras
George Skouras was born in Argos, one of the oldest towns of Europe with a 3,000 years long tradition of wine and culture.
In 1980, George went to study Agriculture at the University of Dijon, in Burgundy, France. However, his acquaintance with the Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs of the region, as well as the famous local wine growers, put a spell on him.
On graduating from Dijon with a degree in oenology, George started gathering experience in many classic wine-producing regions of France, Italy and Greece.
A long-held vision, the creation of Domaine Skouras materialized in 1986. Initially, the small wine-making facility was in Pyrgela, a small village on the outskirts of Argos. The next logical step was the creation of a boutique winery in the Nemea Appellation area, in the village of Gimno.
Situated among vineyards, the Domaine Skouras winery is an ultra-modern winemaking facility, with an elegant Greek architecture, designed to ensure proper and thorough procedures of the highest standards in all aspects of wine production and bottling and a first class experience for visitors seeking education, entertainment, initiation to wine or hospitality.
The state-of-the-art grape reception hall features the most modern presses with a crushing capacity of 800 tonnes. The winery equipment is world class, with about 80 temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks for fermentation and other procedures.
The impressive one-thousand-barrel cellar has a constant temperature of +14°C and 70% humidity, where our wines are aged under ideal conditions. The high quality of our wines is ensured by time, patience, experience and multiple tasting trials.
You are invited to our new wine bar and lounge, to relax with our white wines, to flirt with our rosécreations and discover our multidimensional reds.
At Domaine Skouras, we regularly organize Wine Tastings andWinery Tours where you have the opportunity to visit the Winery and our Vineyards, but also relax while sipping our wines in our new Winelounge bar.
