Boutari Moschofilero (mo-sko-feel-ero) is a premium white wine made from 100% Moschofilero grapes grown in high elevation vineyards in the AOC region of Mantinia in the Peloponnese.
For years Boutari Moschofilero has been an important selling white wine in Greece and, until recently, a virtual unknown in the United States. That was until Tony Terlato discovered it in a blind tasting at Paterno Wines Internationals corporate headquarters. From his first sip, he believed this little gem, so rich in flavor, was a secret just waiting to be discovered in the United States. Boutari Moschofilero's explosion in sales supports his initial prediction; national press, leading restaurateurs, wine retailers and consumers across the country have embraced this crisp, refreshing white wine with enticing citrus, floral and melon aromas.
The Boutari winery's vinification of Moschofilero is a breakthrough for Greek wines...and it just might be the start of the next white wine revolution!

Greece is one of the oldest wine producing regions in the world. The earliest evidence of Greek wine has been dated to 6,500 years ago where wine was produced on a household or communal basis. At that time wine was exported to Europe as a treasured drink, but now days it is competing in a world market. In the 1960's Retsina put Greece back on the map and became their national beverage. Important Regions Include Macedonia, Patras, Santorini, Samos, Crete, and the Agean Islands.
