Domaine Skouras

Skouras Winery was started in 1986 in Pyrgela, Argos by Dijon-trained oenologist George Skouras. Working with both indigenous varieties as well as international varieties, Skouras started producing very high quality Greek wines in the late 1980's. The first bottling of the Megas Oenos, his flagship wine launched in 1988 was the first wine in Greece to blend Aghiorghitiko with Cabernet Sauvignon.
Nemea has been regarded as a great winemaking region since the time of the ancient Greeks; Homer called this region Ampeloessa which literally means "Full of vines". Recent archeological excavations have revealed winemaking being done here over 3500 years ago.
The most important grape variety in here is Aghiorghitiko, also known as St. George, derived from the name of the town where the grape variety is thought to have come from "Agios Georgios" or Saint George.
Skouras makes another equally impressive wine Grand Cuvee Nemea made which is one hundred percent Aghiorghitiko. The grapes come from one of the highest vineyard sites in all of Europe, planted at over 3400 feet above sea level.
Skouras Winery sources grapes from its own vineyards and from dedicated grape-growers in the region and is today at the forefront of Greek estates. Demand for these terroir-driven and estate-bottled wines is strong in both Greece and around the world.

Wine Advocate 91 "The 2017 Moscofilero (as Skouras spells it) comes in with four grams of residual sugar, 6.2 grams of total acidity and 12% alcohol. The combination makes for a dry wine with a lively feel and vivid flavor. Sourced from vines at 650 meters, this is always crisp and elegant. So,

Wine Advocate 92 "The 2016 Moscofilero, Skouras' fine-value regular Moschofilero (in a more typical transliteration), is from a vintage that George Skouras said was "Just fantastic! The year had some damages from hail, but our vineyards did not get touched thankfully. We did a very good selection

Domaine Skouras Moscofilero 2015
90  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 90 "The 2015 Moscofilero is glorious for its flavor and aromatics. Rumors (well, reports) about the lack of maturation in this vintage are noted. It is true that the wines are not on the fatter, riper side. They may tail off faster and not age as well–although, acidity preserves. This

Wine Spectator 89 "Shows a firm structure to the zesty red peach, Fuji apple and melon flavors, accented by notes of white pepper and anise. Powerfully crisp on the finish. Drink now through 2018. 5,000 cases made. —Kim Marcus"  Wine Advocate 89 "The 2014 Moscofilero, the last in this issue's

Domaine Skouras Moscofilero 2013
89  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 89 "The 2013 Moscofilero (with Skouras' alternative transliteration, in case you're wondering why spellings vary) is an un-oaked white that comes in at just 12%. I doubt that this is as concentrated as last year's entrant, but that doesn't mean it isn't enticing. In fact, it shows all
