Achaia Clauss

Patra, 1854

The Bavarian Gustav Clauss, fascinated by the cultural quality of the Achaean capital and the taste dynamics of its delicious vines, decides to create the first wine community in Greece.
He builds a residential complex with cathedral towers, bell-shaped, that enables an entire village to live, work and grows, around the core of winemaking. Over time, the passion and the wisdom of Gustav transformed the small winery into a wine complex, which becomes the cradle of legendary wines. In 1873, was created the warm, deep purple, dessert, sweet and wild wine, Mavrodaphne.
Shortly thereafter, the flavour and the dynamics of Moschato Patron will create the homonymous wine with the fragile charm. The year 1901 is marked by the harvest that Gustav Claus brings from the mountain slopes of Kalavrita and bottles Demesticha for the first time in Greece.
Demesticha becomes the ambassador of Greek winemaking methods and removes the borders as it spreads rapidly the reputation of Gustav's winery to the edge of the earth. Laying the foundations of scholarly winery, he delivered to the followers of his work, the love and the serenity of the land and of the place that accepted and hosted him.
