Lantides Estate is a family business, established in 1993 by Panos Lantides, focusing on the distinction of premium Greek wines.
Panos Lantides began by studying in Montpellier, France, acquired the French enology degree and furthered his knowledge of enology and viniculture at Bordeaux for another two years. Both of his sons chose to join him in the business working together to produce the best new wines of their ancient world.
Lantides winery is located in Nemea, one of the most famous wine zones in Greece and the biggest Protected wine zone for red varieties in Greece with more of 3000 hectares of vineyards.
It was Nemea’s soil and climate that compelled Panos Lantides to cultivate delicate indigenous grape varietals, such as Agiogritiko, Assyrtiko, Malagouzia, and Moschofilero. Some of their varietals are ancient grape varieties dating back 2500 years.
Their efforts are winning medals with the likes of Decanter World Wine awards, introducing ancient varietals to the rest of the world. Of course international varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are also cultivated.
Today, Lantides Estate has more than 25 hectares of vineyards, more than 220.000 bottles per year and exports of nearly 50% in Canada, U.K., Germany, Swiss, Austria, Hong Kong, Italy, Belgium, and Cyprus.
