The place to discover Nemea.
The history of the family is intertwined with wine and Nemea
This is the oldest family of viticulturists in Nemea (19th century) and this is officially proven, as in the property of the family, and specifically of the grandma Mitravelena, there are registered vineyards in today’s Nemea, Agios Georgios at the time.
Documents of "Registration of National estates" of the governor Kapodistrias administration of October 10, 1828 testify that the family already owns vineyards at this time.
Mitravelas winery has been a milestone in the region and counts over a century of continuous history, since Mitravelas grandfather established the winery in the beginnings of the 20th century.
The winery was founded in the city center in 1913 and later in the 1950’s the 3 Mitravelas brothers Andreas, Spyros and Nikos took over the winery. By the end of the 20th century, the family owns about 10 hectares of privately owned vineyards in various areas of Nemea zone.
The 5th GENERATION continues the long journey of the family with respect in the area of NEMEA. The specialization in PDO Nemea wines and the faith in the Agiorgitiko variety is the most important principle and the inspiration of the winery.
Nemea Nowdays at Mitravelas Estate
In 2003 the youngest Mitravelas Konstantinos, son of Andreas, joins and takes over the reins of the business after his business administration studies with vision, new ideas, modernized techniques, state of the art equipment and starts bottling the wines. He has benefited from his father’s long experience in viticulture thus he continues the long tradition of the family.
He launches the innovative inox fermented Agiorgitiko "Red on Black" in 2000 bottles, being the first stainless steel tank produced Nemea ever released in the Greek market.
At the same time, he creates the red "Mitravelas Estate" from 40-year-old vineyards with 6-month ageing in French oak barrels.
The collection is enriched with two more labels, the "White on Grey" a Moschofilero based white wine from the Mantineia PDO zone and the "Mitravelas Rosé" Agiorgitiko with short extraction.
Following, an ultra premium Nemea is produced in limited release coming from 2 very old vineyards of an average of 55 years old with the homonymous label "Old Vines".
Just in 2021 the rare white wine "Emigré" is launched with short maturation in barrel, from Assyrtiko and Kydonitsa grapes, originating from Santorini and Peloponnese but planted in Nemea.
This upward journey is followed by several distinctions, successful exports and inland sales and the re-launch of the brand identity of the winery in 2018.
