The origin of Malagouzia is placed in the villages of the mountainous Nafpaktia, an area of Central Greece, which is opposite to Aigialeia, on the other side of the Corinthian Gulf!
During the 1970s, after a period during which the variety was threatened to extinct, it was the effort of winemakers that has led to its revival. Today it is cultivated throughout Greece with very good results.
It is generally believed that there are two distinct clones or versions of Malagouzia. Malagouzia of Northern Greece with a strong terpenic character and Malagouzia of Southern Greece which shows a greener, botanical character.
To these two versions, we come to add another version of Malagouzia, which is the one of the Slopes of Aigialeia.
Our Malagouzia borrows elements of the Southern version (green and botanical). But its adaptation to the terroir of the Mountainous Aegialeia gives it an exotic character, rich aroma of citrus fruits on a mineral background, which is well-known for the Slopes of Aigialeia.
