Thanasis Papaioannou is one of the first producers who understood and promoted the idea that wine must maintain its unique characteristics. These characteristics come of the grape variety, the vineyards location as well as the procedures, which are followed by the viticulturist - producer for the sake of a biological balance. The family has private owned vineyards in various locations of Nemea and the chosen grape varieties are cultivated with the aim of achieving ultimate harmony with the ecosystem. Mr. Papaioannou's son, George, a chemist - oenologist, continues the tradition and is as creatively active in his own vineyards as in the modern winery of the Ancient Nemea. The goal of both individuals is the continuous improvement of the wines produced, the maintenance of high standards of hygiene and organic characteristics as well as experimentation on new types of wines.

  • Aristocracy Papaioannou Vineyards Sauvginon Blanc 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This smells very fruity and kind of candied with melon, lime and spicy floral aromas that recall mint and fresh pea. Fresh in the mouth, this shows off fine acid and medium body though the flavors of quince, mint and biter apple lack a bit of intensity. 80pts Read More

  • Papaioannou Malagouzia 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Profound aromas of lime leaf, camphor, lemon marmalade, sliced tomato, and lemongrass greet the nose. Light and focused on entry, this shows off pronounced lemon grass, citrus, and herbal flavors in the mouth with a slight shading of astringency keeping this very lively in the mouth. The finish is rather short and clipped. While the nose is most... Read More

  • Estate Papaioannou Agiorgitiko Nemea Old Vines 2000

    Snoothrank:

    A very complex and multylayered wine made from nemea's chief variety, aigiorgitiko.The wine comes only from a small portion of the estate's vineyard where thr older and more mature vines are.This gives the wine a bouquet of aromas so rich,that is nesessary to pour the wine on a decanter and let it breathe for an hour or two before you enjoy it Read More
