Description

Seeking the right location, Υiannis and Amalia Tselepos chose the earthy foothills of historic Mount Parnon to plant vineyards and establish Tselepos Estate in 1989.
Yiannis Tselepos studied oenology at the University of Dijon, from where he graduated in 1979. After working for two years at wineries in Burgundy, he settled in Mantinia in 1981 where he has been regularly making wines ever since. The region, whose exceptional climatic conditions are its inland climate and stony-clay soils, was selected for its ability to produce high-quality wines. It is no coincidence that the first winery to vinify the moschofilero variety was founded in this same region.
The estate’s central philosophy is to promote the varietal potential of the Peloponnesian vineyard, with the Greek moschofilero and agiorgitiko varieties, both in Greece and abroad.
With the purchase of Driopi Estate and its vineyard in Koutsi at Nemea, Tselepos Estate now cultivates 50 Ha of privately-owned vineyards and 20 hectares of vineyards of cooperating producers.
The first wine, Mantinia PDO, was launched in 1991 and was followed a few years later by wines based on cosmopolitan vine varieties.
The yield of the winery has gradually grown, with production reaching 450,000 bottles per year, with 40% of the production being exported, mainly to China, USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, Cyprus, Belgium, and the United Kingdom.
Following thirty creative years, the second generation of Tselepos Estate is ready to lead it into a new era. Equipped with high-level training and education, but especially with passion and fresh perspectives in tandem with the valuable experience and guidance of the older generation, the new generation promises to even greater prominence to the Estate’s quality wines whilst pursuing their vision of producing great Greek wines.
