Stylianos Skandalis Winery
Stylianos Skandalis is the producer of Nama Byzantino one of the few wines recommended by the Greek Orthodox clergy to be used as a communion wine.
- The company with a license for wine bottling, has been operating in the wine industry since 1987, bottling Mavrodaphne from Patra and Muscat from Samos marked as NAMA WINE DIVINE EUCHARIST’S.
- In 1998 the company passed into the hands of Stylianos Nick. Skandalis determined the orientation towards bottled sweet and semisweet wines primarily intended for ecclesiastical use.
- After several months of negotiations with wineries in the wine region of Achaia, achieved in 2001 the production and distribution of naturally sweet wine NAMA BYZANTINE.
- In 2003 our cooperation with AB-Vassilopoulos SA began, and two years later the NAMA BYZANTINE was also available in the supermarket Galaxias.
- Despite the economic crisis, the company bought a contemporary bottling complex in 2010, enlarging its production volume.
- By 2011 the NAMA BYZANTINE had already established its presence in the USA, Germany, Cyprus, Slovakia, and Romania and is expanding in more countries.
