- Nemea, the largest wine appellation in Greece, was known as Aghios Georgios (Saint George) through the 1800's. Nemea's requirements allow for red wines to be produced from one grape only, Agiorgitiko, an ancient variety descended from Fliasios (of even more ancient fame) and whose name is also a synonym of (yup) Saint George. Dark, intense and significant (just like you.)
