The wines from Domaine Porto Carras have won many national and international quality awards. The most awarded wine is their premium brand “Chateau Porto Carras” which has been produced now for over 40 years.
In the vineyards 26 varieties are cultivated.
The conditions on the south-western slopes at an altitude of 200 – 300 meters allow wine producers to produce high quality varieties such as Assyrtiko, Athiri, Malagouzia, Sauvignon Blanc and Rhoditis.
The Greek Limnio is among the red varieties produced. This variety was referred to in texts from Aristotle and is possibly the most ancient variety in the world. Other varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot and Syrah which grow between 300 – 400 meters on the cooler north-eastern slopes of Meliton.
