The term Agiorgitiko means "Saint George's grape". This could refer to Saint George's Day, a Greek celebration that occurs in November (around harvest time.) It may also refer to Saint George's Chapel in Nemea, Greece. Genetic tests have led scientists to believe that the grape is native to Greece. The wines made with Agiorgitiko in the Greek wine region of Nemea are nicknamed the "Blood of Hercules".
The wines created with the Agiorgitiko grape are known for their incrediby deep, plum-like purple color. This is true no matter where the grapes are grown.
