   Samos Wines

Although, many things have changed since ancient times the type of wine mentioned by the ancient grammarian Hesychius in his Lexicon as "Samian Vine" still remains the same owing to Samos' favorable climate and to the extraordinary qualities of its earth.

Thus viniculture and wine production permanently marked the island's economy and history linking the cultivator to this sensitive and demanding plant which required great care and toil in order to produce the unique, sweet flavored, Samian wine known as "moschato". Today, in the two modern and well equipped factories the following wines are produced:

SAMOS NECTAR
Natural, sweet wine, with the controlled appellation of origin "SAMOS". The most noble and fine wine to be found in Greece and possibly in all the vineyards of the world. The Samos nectar wine is produced from over-ripe Muscat grapes, hand picked and dried in the sun for several days to develop its high degree of sweetness. The juice of these grapes undergoes natural fermentation to produce NECTAR, a special kind of wine, with its soft taste and aroma and distinctive appearance.
