Paros Vineyard
The vineyard of Paros is a traditional vineyard of the Aegean sea. Its roots run deep, to the Cycladic Civilisation era (3200 – 2000 B.C.). The main white variety is Monemvasia, early and high grade.

According to Mrs Stavroula Kourakou, Dr Chemist - Oenologist, Paros is the arc which saved the variety Monemvasia (Malvasia) from the Venetian rule era until today.

The tourist development has reduced the vine yard to 600 hectares. These are lands scattered all around the island in steps, if necessary, and enclosed in dry wall.

The ground is poor, dry with sandy - sandy/ argillaceous texture. The winter is mild with little rain, while the summer is cool due to the strong north-eastern winds.
The yield does not exceed 8000 kg/ hectare.
