Domaine Skouras

Domaine Skouras's journey traces back to George Skouras's roots in Argos, a town steeped in a millennia-old wine tradition. His passion for winemaking ignited during his studies in Burgundy, France, where he fell under the spell of Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs. Armed with a degree in oenology from the University of Dijon, George embarked on a quest for knowledge, honing his craft across renowned wine regions in France, Italy, and Greece. In 1986, his vision took shape with the establishment of Domaine Skouras, initially a modest venture in Pyrgela before evolving into a boutique winery in Nemea's Gimno village.

Where The Wines Come From


The Peloponnese peninsula in Greece, steeped in history and mythology, is a region increasingly recognized for its commitment to natural winemaking. With its diverse landscapes, ranging from coastal plains to rugged mountains, and its Mediterranean climate, the Peloponnese provides an ideal environment for cultivating indigenous grape varieties such as Agiorgitiko, Moschofilero, and Assyrtiko. Winemakers here prioritize sustainability, employing organic and biodynamic farming methods to nurture the vines and preserve the region's natural biodiversity. In the cellar, minimal intervention is key, with spontaneous fermentations and aging in neutral vessels allowing the true expression of the grapes and terroir to shine through. The resulting natural wines from the Peloponnese are a reflection of the region's rich cultural heritage and natural beauty, with their vibrant flavors, elegant textures, and a sense of place that captures the essence of Greece's ancient winemaking traditions.
