A native of Argos, Greece, George Skouras studied oenology at the University of Dijon in Burgundy, France. He returned to his beloved homeland and established Domaine Skouras in 1986. With a global vision and an unflinching commitment to quality, he has helped facilitate Greece's remarkable progress toward terroir-focused, estate-bottled wines-and has helped catapult those wines onto the world stage.

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.

Winemaker George Skouras is a champion of modern Greek wine. Starting in the 80's, he was the first to blend Greece's Agioritiko grape with the widely-known Cabernet Sauvignon. His bottle of Zoe is the little brother to that flagship blend and just like a youngin', it's fresh and fruity, round and bouncy.
