Moscofilero is a highly aromatic white varietal of Greek origin grown primarily in George Skouras' homeland of the Peloponnese, and increasingly in the rest of the country.
George Skouras is a big, gregarious personality with a charming twinkle in his eye. He is also one of the most important figures in the Greek wine industry who led the charge to improve the overall quality of Greek wines and to help market them on the global stage. He grew up in the Peloponnese town of Argos that has a rich history of wine and culture dating back 3,000 years. He knew if he wanted to make truly good wine he would have to travel to the source and learn from the masters in Burgundy, France, so he left in 1980 to study Agriculture at the University of Dijon. After graduating with a degree in Enology, George set off to apprentice at several wineries in France, Italy and back home in Greece, where he started making wine in his father's garage. He founded Domaine Skouras in 1986 in a small winery outside of Argos and has expanded over the years to become one of the top wineries in all of Greece, famous for its outstanding Megas Oenos, his stately Aghiorghitiko and Cabernet Sauvignon blend, and his deliciously aromatic Moscofilero.

Speaking to The Drinks Business recently, George Skouras, founder of Domaine Skouras and the godfather of quality wine production in Greece, said he thought that Greek wines were now "very competitive", but that the next step was to produce an "icon wine", in order further to build the country's reputation.

He went on to explain that, while there's been a revolution in quality of Greek wines over the last 30 years, Greece was yet to produce a wine that could propel the country into the limelight of international markets, in the manner of the Super Tuscan estates of Italy, or the trophy wines of California, Chile and Argentina.

George Skouras, proprietor, oenologist and winemaker of Domain Skouras, was born in Argos, a city in Peloponnese that has been inhabited for over 3000 years.
In the early eighties, he studied agriculture in Dijon, France where a local winemaker introduced him to Burgundy wine. Impressed and inspired, his Dionysian element took over, and he switched to oenology. As a Dijon University graduate, he worked for French, Italian and Greek wineries. In 1986 Skouras established his first winery in Pyrghella, a small town near Argos. In 1988 he launched his pioneering Megas Oenos wine, a first-of-a-kind red cuvee, an impressive blend of the local Aghiorgitiko and the international Cabernet Sauvignon with illustrious results. Megas Oenos (great wine) became known as a high quality wine in the Greek market and abroad. In 1996 he built a winery in the bucolic village of Ghymno at 700m altitude, in the designated Nemean Appellation of Origin area. Ghymno, a roof garden of Greek vineyards, is home to 50-year old Aghiorgitiko vineyards. Grapes from these vineyards are used in the Megas Oenos Red. Over the last fifteen years, Skouras has brought his domain to the forefront of Greek estates. Increased demand for his terroir-driven and estate-bottled wines has prompted the building of a new winery and reception center at Malandreni, Argos. An upscale winery with ultimate balance of location, design, efficiency and technology.
