Mylopotamos Mount Athos
Vines have thrived for hundreds of years on the holy site of Mount Athos, cultivated by the monasteries. Mylopotamos is the largest dependency of the Holy Monastery of Great Lavra.
In 1992, Brother Epifanios began the effort to restore and revive Mylopotamos, planting the first vines on a sloping plot beside the sea.
Today, they have an organically-cultivated vineyard covering 4.2 hectares with the varieties Merlot, Limnio, Cabernet Sauvignon, Moschato Alexandrias, Moschato Amvourgou and Roditis.
The winery, with a production capacity of 75,000 bottles, was created in 1997. Built in accordance with the traditional architecture of Mount Athos, it has modern production equipment and the ability to welcome the male visitors to Mount Athos.
Mylopotamos produces 4 labels, and exports wine to four countries.
