In the heart of the two largest and most important PDO appellations regions of Greece are the vineyards of the Nasiakos families. One is Mantinia in Arcadia and the other, the highest point on Nemea “Kotsi” in Corinth, Peloponnese. Mr. Leonidas Nasiakos is the viticulturist, wine maker and producer of his wines. Under the Nasiakos label 6,500 cases of wine are produced from the indigenous appellation varietals such as Moschofilero and Agiorgitiko.
Nasiakos’ vineyard in Mantinia is 2000 feet above sea level while in Nemea over 2,700 feet. These very high elevations prolong the harvest time which ensures that sugar levels are at desirable levels. For Nasiakos, harvest time is mid-September to early October.
Nasiakos wines have been rated by American media for over 15 years with ratings from 87 to 93. These ratings are from Robert Parker, Wine Spectator, Wine Enthusiast and Wine & Spirits.
