Denthis is the oldest appellation in the world. It is the project name for Eklektikon’s affordable yet honest line of wines, made by small family wineries of Greece.

Nemea is the largest winemaking region of Greece, and home to the most planted red grape of Greece, the indigenous Agiorgitiko. It has a PDO status (PDO Nemea) for red wines of 100% Agiorgitiko. “Agiorgitiko” means “Saint George”, which was the old name of Nemea (“Agios Georgios”).

A city in the Peloponnese, in the south of Greece, Nemea has a rich winemaking history since ancient times, when it was called “Fliasion Pedion”. Nemea was also known for “Nemia”, one of the most famous athletic competition of ancient times, along with the Olympic games.

In Nemea, one can visit the ancient town of Nemea, the monastery of “Panagia Vrahou” which is built on the cliff of the nearby mountain, the numerous wineries, or celebrate the annual wine festival.
