PATRAS, 1854 Bavarian Gustav Clauss, captivated by the cultural refinement of the Achaean capital and the lively tastes of its vineyards, decides to establish the first wine estate in Hellas. He builds a homestead settlement, complete with cathedral towers in the form of belfries, thus enabling an entire village to live, work and develop around the nucleus of wine production. Over the years, Gustav’s passion and wisdom will transform a small winery into an estate which will become the cradle of legendary wines. PATRAS, 1873 1873 sees the birth of the warm, full-bodied, sweet desert wine Mavrodaphne with its distinctive violet colour. PATRAS, 1901 Soon after, the tantalizing and aromatic Patras Muscat gives rise to a charming delicate wine of the mountainsides of Kalavryta and bottles Demestica for the first time. Demestica becomes the ambassador for Greek wine production, its fame rapidly crossing the borders to spread Gustav’s winemaking skills all oven the world. By laying the foundations of natured winemaking, Gustav Clauss passed on to future generations of his metier his love of the land and its fertility as well as of the country, which accepted him and offered him its hospitality. PATRAS, 1919 ACHAIA CLAUSS becomes Hellenic owned. The plant’s gradual modernization and technical production begin. The traditional winemaking section however is preserved, providing evidence of ACHAIA CLAUSS’s fundamental contribution to the development of refined wines in Hellas. ACHAIA CLAUSS is by now famous in over 40 countries around the world. Its love for good wine, its determination to improve quality as well as its indisputable know-how place it among the most competitive witnesses in the world and enhance ACHAIA CLAUSS' s ability to reveal the hidden secrets of the Hellenic Vineyard. PATRAS, today Today Achaia Clauss is producing its wines in a new winery with up-to date technology, only a few kilometers away from the historic facilities. ACHAIA CLAUSS is a time oasis, offering its beauty and its history up to time, το two hundred thousand visitors per year, and to those who love it and are concerned with the preservation of its uniqueness. After all, it is a part of the heritage of this land which has suffered, been glorified, withstood the test of time and progressed. It is a page out of our history books stubbornly refusing to age, maintaining its freshness and sense of adventure from that time in 1854 when a young, rebellious bohemian Gustav Clauss challenged the values and traditions of the prestigious bourgeoisie of the era by creating the best-known and longest lived Wine Ambassador of Hellas in the world.

Achaia Clauss is a winery in the area of Glafkos (around 15 km from Patra) famous for a red, sweet wine which is called Mavrodafni.It deserves a visit.

Was not our first visit so we made the tour alone and we got memories from the older tours. Then we enjoyed to taste the new wines of Achaia Clauss production and discuss with other people about wine and mavrodafne wine especially.
