In 1986 George Skouras’ vision began and in 2004, in the wine growing area of Nemea, Domaine Skouras was established. For Peplo, they used three varieties and three different vinification methods. Agiorgitiko matures in acacia barrels, Syrah matures on its lees in a stainless tank and Mavrofilero in ceramic amphorae along with its skins for about 4 months. The skin of Mavrofilero is contained in a fabric within the amphora to allow better control during the extraction process. At the end of its maturation the fabric helps them to make the separation of the young wine from the skins. This detail gave the name to this rose wine, Peplo (veil in greek).
