Brand Moraitis

Created from the combination of two ancient varieties,  the deep red Mandilaria (75%) and the white Monemvasia (25%), which flourish under the bright sun and resist the famous “Meltemi” winds of Paros. The Mandilaria grape is also known as Amorgiano and grows well in poor rocky clay soil mixed with sand. It is found in various appellations, usually with other grapes such as Monemvasia in Paros, Kotsifali in Crete or as a single variety on the island of Rhodes, producing distinctive red wines.

The grapes are selected from low-yielding vineyards – 60 year old vines. They are harvested early September and co-ferment at 24°C (75F). The wine is aged for 12 months in 2nd use 225l barrels, 70% French oak and 30% American oak barrels. Spice and prune aromas with dark berry tones. Rich and robust on the palate with concentrated tannins and a long finish. 13% alcohol. Only 2000 cases produced.

The fine quality Moraitis estate is owned by Manolis Moraitis whose grandfather founded the winery in 1910. Today Moraitis is the only privately owned wine estate on the island, and Manolis is working with his son Theo; soon he will also work with his son Savvas after his military duties are complete.
