The vision of Manolis Moraitis, a third-generation winemaker is to preserve the authentic character and quality of the local vineyards. It is worth noting that the historical Parian vineyards have roots in the Cycladic era (3,200-2,000 BC). Moraitis wines are characterized by their freshness and their great aromatic concentration.
Moraitis winery owns a huge area of organic vineyards in the most fertile areas of the island, featuring a wide variety of Greek wines such as Assyrtiko, Malagouzia, Vaftra, and Mandilaria. Today, the average production of the famous winery reaches 300,000 bottles a year and more than 30% is exported to USA, Canada, England, German, Italy, and Cyprus. The museum's collection offers an overview of the Parian wine-making history and tradition as well as interesting insights on the different types of equipment used in the manufacture and other agricultural tools for the vine growing population.
