DOMAINE EVHARIS - Mourtiza, Megara, Attica, Greece

On the rolling hills of Megara, in the foothills of the Gerania Mountains, time appears to have come to a halt, remaining forever in antiquity. Vines have been cultivated here since 1000 BC, as the climatic conditions and soil morphology are ideal. The area derives its name from Megareus, son of Oinoe, whose own name in Greek is closely associated with the word for wine.


Eva-Maria Boehme and Harry Antoniou’s vines today stand in harmonious ranks in Megara, on the sun kissed slopes between the Bay of Salamina and the Bay of Corinth, surrounded by towering pines and old olive groves. The Domaine covers an area of some 18 hectares. The rows of vines are divided up by small paths, lined with rosemary and lavender, brightly colored roses and sweet scented mimosas, almond and pomegranate trees.


The vineyards were planted back in 1988, with a total of nine indigenous and international grape varieties, extending to an altitude of 400m, in an area situated between the communities of Pefkeneas and Mourtiza. They follow a linear layout, with a northerly orientation, so their leaves are ventilated by the wind and the grapes can breathe better. In this way, the build up of excessive humidity is avoided and the plants are protected against disease. The otherwise poor soils at Megara are rich in calcium, sand and minerals and the climate in the area, with its cool summers and mild winters, is ideal for cultivating vines. “Our grapes are like our children, because only a good vineyard produces good wine," is a philosophy these two passionate winemakers strongly believe in.
