Vinification Details

  • The grapes are harvested in August and sun-dried before pressing. Normal fermentation takes place and is arrested by the addition of a small quantity of grape spirit. This kills the yeast and thereby preserves the sugar content (at 130 gms/lit). The wine is then aged in oak barrels for a minimum of one year using a ‘solera' system


  • Mavrodaphne of Patras is a traditional wine of Greece. It is made from grape varieties unique to Greece. The wine was first made famous by Gustav Clauss, a Bavarian, who came to Greece with the Bavarian prince, Otto, who was offered the Crown of Greece in the 1830s. In 1864 the Mavrodaphne was introduced - so called in memory of Gustav's fiancee, a black-haired Greek girl called Daphne, who had died before they were able to be married. In the succeeding 150 years it has become a famed wine of Greece.

Regional Information

  • The Mavrodaphne wine possesses a Protected Designation of Origin - Patras. It originates from vineyards on the low hills and lower slopes of the Peloponnesian mountains surrounding the city of Patras, from which it takes its full name, Mavrodaphne of Patras. The vineyards overlook the Gulf of Patras and are kept cool during the hot summer days by the onshore sea breezes. The soil is generally alluvial clay underlain by limestone.

It's delicious, tasty and fruity & I wish they could order more, as it's often out of stock

From White to Red!

5 stars

My wife and I drink moderately sweet German white wine. We avoid red wine like the plague - but when we noticed this sweet red we 'gave it a whirl' and - boy - did it go down well! It's so smooth and gentle on the stomach. I won't use the normal 'OTT' expressions these idiotic wine buffs use to describe the taste [boot polish and all!] but to us the taste is most acceptable and the main problem is saying no to another glass - because it's quite strong!

I was, at first, wary of wine but my fears were unfounded. Great wine, great value and really good quality wines. I have never been disappointed with a single bottle.

Sumptuous, deep, soft and sweet.

5 stars

Fabulously deep, soft and sweet . For those of us who only like sweet wines and cannot palate dry wine or wine with the bitterness of tannin. It is one of those extremely rare finds and the only red wine I have found that I can drink. It is a pleasure and an indulgence.

Beautiful taste

This is the nicest sweet red wine ever!! I am not usually a wine drinker but this wine excels in taste and flavour. If you don't like a very sweet wine then it is not for you but as a desert wine I cannot fault it
