"Great Wine is Meant to be Shared"
Peter and Eleni Markeas came to Australia in the early 1960's from their homeland of Kardamili, Greece. In their search for a better life, they fell in love with the Riverland region of South Australia - a sundrenched country with nutrient-rich soils nourished by the Murray River. The location was perfect to realize their life-long dream of owning a vineyard and making wine.
Nearly 50 years later after planting the first vines, their family-owned winery produces high-quality Australian wines which evoke the atmosphere of Greece - one sip and you’ll feel as if you’ve been transported to a lovely taverna on a warm, enjoyable evening.
Great care is taken through the entire winemaking process to preserve the character of the fruit to the bottle. To ensure the highest quality wine, the Markeas family embraces traditional winemaking techniques with the assistance of new technologies, all while preserving the soil and terroir.
The following wines are currently imported:
