Collection: Mavrodaphne

Mavrodaphne is most often found on the Peloponnese peninsula and the Ionian Islands. It is traditionally used in sweet, fortified wines, especially on the island of Kefalonia, known for their PDO Mavrodaphne of Cephalonia,” a rich red sweet made with sun-dried grapes, sometimes compared to the flavour profiles of Port.

The deep red fruit, leather and earthiness of the Mavrodaphne grape make it perfect for sweet wines, but in recent years, several wineries have begun producing dry reds on the varietal, producing some grand wines often compared to big-name Amarone wines. Almost always cask aged, wines on Mavrodaphne are perfect for storage and only get better with age.
