Grapes: 100% Agiorgitiko
Nemea is internationally celebrated as the region with vines that produce the world’s best agiorgitiko grapes. Acquired in 2003 by Giannis Tselepos, the Driopi estate is a 50 year-old 8.5 hectare vineyard comprised of clay soil located at 380 meters above sea level in Koutsi, Nemea. Tselepos replanted four hectares with specially selected clones and maintained the balance while adjusting production to meet the high standards of the Tselepos winemaking philosophy such as low yields (6 tons / per hectare) and innovative vinification methods.
