Mavrodaphne of Patras


+ Add a winery image

Mavrodaphne (or Mavrodafni) of Patras is not a winery, but a type of wine produced around the city of Patra, in Peloponnese, Greece. This is a deep, dark and sweet fortified wine, similar to Port, although it is made in a solera system (younger wine is added to older wine) like that of Sherry. The wine is produced from the grape of the same name.

    This wine is very sweet. It is actually the sweetest red I have ever had. Raisin in very strong opening into dates. This would be excellent as a desert wine with dark chocolate. Read More

  • The Tetramythos vineyards lie on steep slopes of Mount Helmos, on the most southern tip of Greece's mainland. When I last visited, in April, the soil was covered with alpine grass and wild flowers, a visible result of the organic farming that is meticulously applied.

    This wine was recommended to me as a good sweet dessert wine so I only have me and my husbands opinion to give. It is very sweet and it packs a punch, there is a lot of alcohol in this wine.
