Monemvasia Winery, G.Tsibidis & Co, was founded in 20 September 1997 in Monemvasia of Lakonia by G.Tsibidis.

This initiative was part of a wider business plan with a clear objective: the revival of the Malvasia wine in its birth place. Work covered a number of activities from historical research, to vine search, vine growing ,wine making, bottling, distribution, promotion and trading.

Malvasia wine.

Starting in the 12th century and for the subsequent 300 years, this wine ruled our European world. It is still being produced in many locations including Italy, Spain, Portugal, Madeira, even California and Croatia but is not produced in its country of birth, Greece, which gave it its name Malvasia which is the Frankish name for Monemvasia.

Research.

Monemvasia Winery started out as part of a research foundation within the PAVE programmes carried out by VITRO, the Agricultural Universities of Athens and Thessalonica, as well as ETHIAGE and had, as its subject, the search and development of the many grape varieties which apparently went into the production of Malvasia wines.

In close collaboration with the wine institute, the company then moved to experimental wine making using the identified local varieties.

Wine growing.

Monemvasia Winery proceeded to create vineyards with these local varieties and acquired more land for further development (a total of 20 hectares).

Wine making.
Monemvasia Winery has set up a wine making plant, processing grapes from its own vines as well as from the wider area, producing wines traded under the names: Monemvasios, Laloudi, Maleatis, Kastropolitia ,Monemvasia, Asyrtiko ,Kidonitsa, Asproudi, Fileri, Nostos, Lakonicos, Anthosmias , , and more.

Some, such as the Laloudi (white and red), are biological.

Distribution and Marketing.
Monemvasia Winery distributes its products through a wide network in Greece and abroad. You may taste our wines when visiting our wonderful Monemvasia.

In 1999 exports represented 10% of our sales and reached 50% in 2008,2009,2010.
