The vineyards of the Peloponnese are concentrated mainly on hilly and mountainous areas, either in complex terrain or plains and valleys between the mountains. Blessed by a mild Mediterranean climate that is formed by the favourable effect of the sea breezes from the Gulf of Corinth and the cool air provided by the mountain ranges of central Greece, the region is home to a wide mix of indigenous and international varieties.
About the Winery:
Lantides Estate Winery is a family business that started in 1993 by Paniko Lantides with emphasis on the promotion of quality Greek wine. The soil and climate of Nemea was what pushed Paniko Lantidi to cultivate noble varieties of grapes such as Agiorgitiko, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Moschofilero, Assyrtiko and Malagousia.
Panos Lantides was born in Morphou, Cyprus where he lived until 1970, when he decided to engage in oenology. He began by studying in Montpellier, France, acquired the French oenology degree and furthered his knowledge on oenology and viniculture at Bordeaux for another two years. He subsequently decided to start his professional activity in Greece, which allowed him greater flexibility in professional activation. He was initially employed by a large contemporary company, as main oenologist, vinifying grapes in Nemea, Attica and Mantinia.
Fifteen years later, he took a pioneering step towards barrel construction and trade. After he had engaged in his privately owned vineyard in Attica, he turned towards the land he had always dreamed about, Nemea. In 2000, his winery was ready, next to a privately owned vineyard in Xerocampos of Nemea, located 800 meters from the exit to the national road. Soon after, he began designing a second vineyard, starting with the first two square kilometers, and planting Agiogritiko, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot in Asprokampos of Nemea, at an altitude of 650 meters – and Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Assyrtiko, Malagouzia, Moschofilero in Scotini of Argolida, at an altitude of 550 meters.
