In 2003 wine producer Giannis Tselepos pursuing his dream to expand his wine making activity decides to purchase a vineyard covering an area of 8.5 hectares after a long search throughout the Peloponnesian growth. This 50 year-old vineyard is located at Koutsi, Nemea at an altitude of 380 metres. Nemea is well-known among both wine producers and wine lovers as the perfect location to produce wines of the highest standards with great ageing potential from agiorgitiko grapes. Agiorgitiko produces quality wines with intense colour, rich in polyphenols and with high levels of tannins.
With the guidance and the know-how of the Tselepos Estate specialized team, we have managed to make all the necessary arrangements so that Driopi Estate meets our expectations and fulfils our dreams. This way, a stretch of 4 hectares was replanted with specially selected clones, while the rest of the vineyard was maintained, yet adjusted to our new philosophy so that it meets the high standards of Tselepos Estate, such as low yields (6 tons / per hectare) and innovative vinification methods. In the premises of the Estate there is a small state-of-the-art winery including wine cellars serving as a wine making unit for agiorgitiko.
