Achaia Clauss Wine Co., Achaia, Peloponnesus, Greece


Today, the Achaia Clauss Wine Co. is one of the largest wineries in Greece and the largest exporter of cork-sealed Greek wine exporting to forty-two countries. Its portfolio includes thirty-two wines and four spirits ranging from young, refreshing wines to boutique-style wines with depth and richness. The winery produces an excess of three million cases of wine each year on facilities capable of handling 20,000 bottles per hour. In the recent past, Nick Karapanos, the owner of Achaia Clauss, invested over $10 million in state-of-the-art equipment and has contracted with growers all over Greece to meet the company's growing needs. Its most famous products are Demestica, Mavrodaphne, Muscat, Nemea, Chateau Clauss, Danielis, Santa Helena, Retsina, and Ouzo. These wines have won resounding critical acclaim and have withstood the test of time. Each year, the winery receives 250,000 visitors, who have the opportunity to taste these beautiful wines, and to visit cellars, which house ornate casks dedicated to visiting dignitaries that date back to Empress Elizabeth of Austria in 1885.
