In the heart of the verdant Lakonia countryside, between Sparta and Gythio, on the way to Monemvasia, Mani and Mystras, one finds the vineyards and winery of the Georgios Theodorakakos family.
According to tradition, the aristocracy of Constantinople (Istanbul) received wine from this region via neighboring Mystras.
The first of the estates’ vines were planted at the beginning of the 20th century by grandfather Nicholas. In 1970 Georgios Theodorakakos created the first regional vineyard, which has served as a model, prompting other locals to engage in systematic vineyard cultivation.
Today, rare local varieties are grown on 10 Ha of privately-owned vineyards. They are cultivated organically without the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers, a practice that accords with the Theodorakakos family’s philosophy of life as well as sense of duty towards consumers.
With the culture of wine touching more and more people, Theodorakakos Estate is open to the public and invites your visit.
