The wines of Mylonas

Savatiano specialists from Attica, Greece

Based in Keratea in Eastern Attica, the Mylonas vineyard is in the hands of the third generation, the Mylonas brothers, who took over things in 2000. They began making wines under their own name in 2006. It's the highest-altitude vineyard in the Mesogaia region, nestled in the foothills of Mount Panion at 200-350 m, and benefitting from a sea breeze. Soils are sandy clay over limestone, and in some parts shale. The 12 hectares of vines yield less than a ton a hectare, and 80% is planted to the Savatiano variety.
