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.

  • 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.
