Near one of the oldest monastic settlements of Mount Athos (autonomous republic of Greece governed by Orthodox monks), wine grapes have been cultivated in the Mylopotamos vineyards for over a thousand years. A place full of spirituality, inhabited by 1500 monks who animate monasteries and hermitages rich in icons, altarpieces, frescoes, manuscripts and rare miniatures. According to tradition, Mary and St. John arrived here after the resurrection of Christ. Father Epifanio’s painstaking work intervened in 1890 to save these centuries-old plants from abandonment, which today produces organic red, white, rosé and dessert wines using biodynamic methods.
