Why do we love it?

Mouchtaro Muses Estate is the first wine that comes to your mind when you think of rare Greek grape varieties and juicy red wines, with character! Yes, we know, because the same thing happens to us, too!

Athanasios Zacharias with his persistent efforts was responsible for saving this extremely rare Greek variety from the phylloxera of 1955, which destroyed the Greek vineyard almost completely. Mouchtaro owes him its existence. It is cultivated exclusively in the Muses Valley, at the foot of Mount Helicon. The third generation of the winery, Nikos, Stelios, and Panagiotis Zacharias, could not help but follow the vision and the path set by their grandfather. Mouchtaro proved difficult to cultivate.

The three brothers invested in organic cultivation, taking advantage of the ideal conditions of the region. The altitude of 550-650 m, the slopes that provide good drainage, and the cold air masses from Helicon that create a high diurnal range, contribute significantly to the perfect and healthy ripening of the fruit. With very low yields (450 kg / km2) it acquires a unique concentration that expresses its diversity in each sip. In this classic single varietal vinification, Mouchtaro 2018 Muses Estate fully vindicates those who believed in it and devoted themselves to its cultivation

You will hardly find another Greek wine with the velvety, cherry sensation of Mouchtaro 2018 Muses Estate.

MOUCHTARO 2018 - MUSES ESTATE

PAIR IT

with grilled steaks, pasta with bolognese sauce, or meat in tomato sauce with rice.

Pork chops with tomato jam and crispy leek

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil and 6 extra tablespoons (for leek)
  • 1 fresh onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 4 ripe tomatoes finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of mirin (or white wine vinegar and 1 tablespoon of sugar)
  • 4 pork chops (about 2 cm thick)
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 leek (white part only) well washed

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a pan. Add the onion and the garlic and cook until they become transparent, about 3 minutes.

Add tomatoes and mirin (or vinegar and 1 tablespoon of sugar). Boil while stirring to moderate heat, until the mixture becomes almost dry or about 15 minutes.

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large pan. Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Sauté until they get a nice golden-brown color, about 1.5 minutes on each side. Transfer them to a baking pan and roast them for about 5 minutes in the preheated oven.

Add the remaining 4 tablespoons of olive oil to the pan. Chop the white part of the leek. Add the leeks to the hot olive oil and fry until crisp.
