Mylonas is a small winery, producing just under 100k bottle per year. They are based in Attica, Greece.

Stamatis Mylonas and his brothers took the winery over from their dad. Stamatis had studied oenology and chemistry and started experimenting and pushing boundaries. Yet, the new vision for the family winery still at its very centre Savatiano, one of the region indigenous grape variety.

In fact, at Mylonas more than half of the wine production revolves around it.

And indeed they bottle several labels using Savatiano: current vintage wine, late release bottles, they age it in oak to produced yet another label, they add nothing to it and make a natural wine, they let the grapes sundry to produce a sweet version of it, and let’s not forget… they add pine resin to the must and bottled their retsina!

Malagousia

Malagousia (aka Malagouzia) is a white Greek wine grape.

In the past it risked extinction. In fact, Malagousia was resurrected only in the 70s and 80s did thanks to Vassilis Logothetis, a professor of oenology, and Vangelis Gerovassiliou, one of his students.

If the Gerovassiliou sounds familiar, it’s because Vangelis is now the owner of one of the best known wine estates in Greece. Of course he produces his own Malagousia!
