Kyros Melas is a successful businessman and an aficionado of fine wine and Greece.
The inner strength that drives him to produce great wine is based on a personal challenge.
It all started during a dinner in Zurich, while drinking Chateau La Fleur-Petrus. He bet on Greece, taking up a fellow diner’s challenge that he could make a better wine than Chateau La Fleur-Petrus in his homeland - Greece.
Even though that bet hasn’t been won yet, Melas is very close to reaching his goal, because he is a perfectionist. So, at the La Tour Melas estate everything has been done properly, from the design and planting of the vineyard to the winery and the guesthouses.
His success is obvious, as he managed to make what, by general admission, is a very good wine in a region without a winemaking tradition – further proof that there’s a wine-land in every corner of this country.
