Our vineyard is located in Laureotiki, in the region of Keratea and belongs to the broader wine-growing zone of Mesogaia, a historic place, famous for its wine since the time of ancient Greece and the symposiums of Plato, Socrates and Aristotle.
Although we operate in the region of Keratea, which belongs to the wine-growing zone of Mesogaia, our vineyard is deeply diversified compared to the rest of Mesogaia, as it has significant advantages in climate conditions, altitude and in soil composition.
It is the vineyard with the highest altitude of Mesogaia, since it is located at the foothills of Mount Panion at an altitude of 200-350m., embraced literally by the sea, which gives to the vineyard a blessed breeze. The most important difference though between other regions of Mesogaia and our vineyard is in the soil, its average composition being sandy clay with a limestone background in some areas or rocky on the outskirts of Keratea and as we approach Lavrio limestone switches to shale.
The area was known for its abundance of minerals from the Age of Pericles up to the postwar period of World War II.
This is the ground that holds the key to the special taste, a taste that makes Mylonas wines to stand out.
Today our vineyard amounts to a total of 12 hectares. It is non-irrigated, 45-50 years old and with very small yields reaching a maximum of 400 kg per hectare. Of course there is no doubt that the largest proportion is occupied by the Savatiano variety, a variety that we were nurtured with since our childhood.
