I was born in the vineyard. Growing up, I wanted to follow it in all its stages. So, my love for the vine is the one that actually made me move on to the production of wine
Fanis Mitrakos is currently at the helm of the Mitrakos wine-making enterprise, which has been cultivating Nemea vineyards since the late 19th century. It is the fourth generation of winegrowers and it is the one who dared the step towards professional winemaking.
But looking back several hundred years back, we see Kostantis Mitrakos, the grandfather of Fanis, named after Mani, to settle in Nemea shortly before the dawn of the 20th century and to immediately deal with the vineyard. Thus, the foundations for a wine-making tradition, which for the Mitrakos family is a trademark, were laid down.
Fanis and Vassilis Mitrakos, grandfather and father of the current winemaker, took the lead, respectively, building the traditional relationship of the Mitrakos family with the vineyard of Nemea and its characteristic variety, the Agiorgitiko.
All these years, the production of Metaxos family grapes was directed to the cooperative winery of Nemea. However, since 2006, the small but modern winery of the estate, where the winemaker Fanis Mitrakos is doing everything for the production of the desired wines.
All members of the Mitrakos family continue to play a very active role in the cultivation process of their vineyards, and their activity has already been extended to the family winery.
