Vangelis Gerovassiliou is a giant of Greek wine. More than any man he represents Greece’s modern wine industry. A student of and close collaborator with the great Emile Peynaud at the University of Bordeaux, Gerovassiliou went on to help work as the oenologist at the ambitious Porto Carras winery project in Greece. While there he experimented with a number of grape varieties and found that the near-extinct Malagouzia grape made superb white wine. With patience and dedication he propagated vines from a single small sample. Today, wineries all over Greece obtain Malagouzia plant material from Gerovassiliou Estate and Malagouzia is one of Greece’s powerhouse wines, earning top 50 rankings by publications such as Wine Spectator.
