Mylopotamos is a part of the Autonomous Monastic state of the Mountain Athos in Greece, part of the largest dependency of the Holy Monastery of Great Lavras.
It was founded by Saint Athanasios the Athonite in 973 A.D as a church, a winery and an olive press. There are many historical references for the exceptional table & communion wines of Mylopotamos.
Today the winery is situated in the private vineyard of Mylopotamos and is equipped with all the necessary modern equipment for vinification and bottling. Built with the traditional Mount Athos architecture, faithfully maintains the traditional Athos wine-making process and operates under the license of the General National Laboratory.
Mylopotamos wines are produced from organically grown grapes that are cultivated by the monks of Mylopotamos. Athos is surrounded by sea.
In combination with the ecological care given to the vineyards, a number of important beneficial factors create the necessary conditions for an excellent grape harvest. The collection, the wine-making, the maturating process and bottling at Mylopotamos, are all combined to produce unique wines.
Today, in the vineyards the varieties of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Limnio, Muscat of Alexandria and Assyrtiko are cultivated.
