The Mercouri (or Merkouri) estate is one of the Greek wine industry's charming pleasures. The estate itself, a working farm that has been family-owned for nearly 150 years, is breathtakingly beautiful, tastefully preserved and stunningly landscaped. Good taste is so pervasive at Mercouri that we were not the least surprised about the originality and universally high quality of their wines.
