About the Winery:
Monemvasia Winery was founded in 1997 in Monemvasia in the region of Laconia by Yorgos and Elli Tsimbidi. Drawing inspiration from the myth of the long-lost Malvasia wine and driven by their love for their homeland and their faith in its potential, they took the big decision to start a winery from scratch.

The fervour and dedication to reviving the medieval Malvasia wine urged them to seek out the local grape varieties and the traditional ways of vinification. Throughout this journey, they stumbled upon and experimented with rare varieties and thus Monemvasia, Kydonitsa, Asproudi and Mavroudi came out of obscurity.
