Whether his birthplace of Argos, a town with 3,000 years of winemaking history, had anything to do with George Skouros becoming a winemaker in Greece we’ll never know, but it does make for a good story! After studying agriculture and oenology in Dijon and spending several years gaining experience across France and Greece, George finally placed his own name in Argos history. Founded in 1986, he focuses on traditional grape varietals to produce terroir-driven wines that earn international acclaim.
This wine, while called ‘Moscofilero’ is actually from one of its clones, ‘Mavrofilero.’ Boasting darker skins, nearly black in color, it is a striking example of the fact that the juice of most grapes still runs clear!
