Vingårdene: Mylonas winery Keratea region,Eastern Attika.

History

The history of our winery starts almost a century ago, back in 1917 in the region of Keratea in Eastern Attica, with our grandfather Antonis, whose main occupation was the vine and winemaking. He left the grape must to ferment in amphorae, since stainless steel tanks were unknown at that time.
Later the small business passed to our father, Dimitris, who continued the wine tradition of our grandfather, expanding the enterprise with purchase of new vineyards creating at the same time a small, modern winery. Beside our father, three sons, Antonis, Tasos and Stamatis playing with soil and grapes as little children, growing up observing the soil, weather and wind learning how to talk with the vine, digging and pruning it so much that in the end it became part of ourselves. It was only natural to turn the vine and the wine into our profession, Stamatis and Antonis studying chemists–oenologists and Tasos economics to run our small business.
Practically, the history of Mylonas brothers begins in 2000 when, after the loss of our father, we took over the responsibility to follow the steps and evolve what he made, even go a step further, as he did when the winery passed from his father and our grandfather Antonis to him.
The result was the creation of a brand new, small, modern winery, the standardization of our wines and our first official presence in the Greek market in 2006 with our trademark being “Savatiano Mylonas Winery”.
Our vineyard is located in Laureotiki, in the region of Keratea and belongs to the broader wine-growing zone of Mesogaia, a historic place, famous for its wine since the time of ancient Greece and the symposiums of Plato, Socrates and Aristotle.
It is the vineyard with the highest altitude of Mesogaia, since it is located at the foothills of Mount Panion at an altitude of 200-350m., embraced literally by the sea, which gives to the vineyard a blessed breeze. The most important difference though between other regions of Mesogaia and our vineyard is in the soil, its average composition being sandy clay with a limestone background in some areas or rocky on the outskirts of Keratea and as we approach Lavrio limestone switches to shale.
The area was known for its abundance of minerals from the Age of Pericles up to the postwar period of World War II.
This is the ground that holds the key to the special taste, a taste that makes Mylonas wines to stand out.
Today our vineyard amounts to a total of 12 hectares. It is non-irrigated, 45-50 years old and with very small yields reaching a maximum of 400 kg per hectare. Of course there is no doubt that the largest proportion is occupied by the Savatiano variety, a variety that we were nurtured with since our childhood.
