WINERIES / CELLARS – Troupis Winery#GREECE
Troupis’ crisp Moschofilero displays the slight perfumes of the surrounding Arcadian underbrush and bramble.
The Troupis family has a long history of work in agronomy dating back to the ’70s where vines, fruit baring trees and flowers have been grown and sold from their nursery in Mantinia. As with other traditional Greek families who make wine for their own table, their efforts in the cultivation of vines naturally grew into the desire to share their passion with others.
Troupis Winery is located in the heart of Mantinia at an altitude of 700 meters in the region of Fteri or “fern”.
Tasos Troupis, supported by his children, has created a production and wine making facility by putting to good use the experience and love he has for the vine.
In the high altitudes of the central Peloponnese, the noble Moschofilero grape is cultivated producing the eponymously named AOC wine, Mantinia. The continental climate together with the soils of the high Mantinia plain, which are a well drained and clay rocky lead to the production of exciting, aromatic white wines.
Troupis Winery owner emphasizes the production of a wide range of Greek varieties such as Agiorgitiko, Moschofilero, Mavrodaphne, and old and forgotten vines such as Kolliniatiko. After selective handpicking, these grapes are processed under controlled temperature conditions to give rise to luscious red and white wines. The estate also produces top-class rosé and dessert wines, all under the finest PDO and PGI labels.
Troupis’ crisp Moschofilero is fermented in stainless steel tank and displays the slight perfumes of the surrounding Arcadian underbrush and bramble. Rose, violets, spices and citrus fruit are wrapped in the intense acidity with which Moschofilero has become synonymous.
Apart from incorporating modern techniques in the viticulture, the Troupis Family has also renovated the cellar. The modern equipment, large capacity cold stores, and a new bottling line have been introduced to deliver high-quality wines. A well-furnished tasting room, tank area, and bottling line area are also included in the cellar.
