where Alexander the Great was sourcing grapes
to make wine, before each operation
It has been historically proven that Amyndeo is the area where Alexander the Great was sourcing grapes to make wine, before each military operation.
Located on the northernmost area of Greece, in Amyndeo, and on the highest possible altitude, P. Argyropoulos is crafting exceptional wines from French grapes, in a soil and a continental climate that is optimal for this venture.
The climate in this area is positively affected by the multiple lakes and the bodies of mountains that surround the vineyards, making this an exceptional winemaking region. “P. Argyropoulos” is the winemaker’s newest venture, with the goal of crafting affordable Greek wines from international grapes, in a gifted region.
