Tour of the vineyards – in the workshops of Dionysus

Tour of the vineyards – in the workshops of Dionysus

Arcadia worshiped Dionysus, the duel nature God of intoxication and devotion. A special order, the Meliastes, were charged with the sacred duty to celebrate feast days in honour of God with custom and prudence. The wine that has always flowed plentifully in Arcadia, is a sacred gift, it is not just a product. For the mellifluous drink to come and fire the heart of man an agreement  between the celestial and subterranean powers was needed. Nutrient-rich earth, a mild winter, light rains, sun and protection from wind is needed. The whole of nature works to produce an invaluable bunch of grapes. After that man takes over.

The vinous tradition is huge in Arcadia. Centuries and centuries of knowledge have accumulated. Every bottle of wine conceals its wisdom, technique, love and dedication. The Mosxofilero of Mantinia is the hallmark of Arcadia’s wine history. From 2012 the Mantinian sparkling wines will also be protected with designation of origin, enriching the pleasure.

Mantinia of course belongs to the wine routes. The enterprising men of Dionysus’ noble gift combine their passion for wine with a passion for history. A visit to the region of traditional vineyards is a really great adventure with a tour into the Arcadia of ancient times.
