About the Producer: The House of Kourtakis is a family wine-making business that dates back to 1895. It was founded by Vassilis Kourtakis (1865-1946), who was the first person in Greece to obtain a diploma in oenology. He established his wine-making activity at Markopoulo, thirty kilometers to the northeast of Athens in the heart of one of the most celebrated wine growing regions of Greece - Attica.
