In 1859 the Bavarian Gustav Clauss, captivated by the culture of the Achaean capital and the special taste of vines, decided to create the first wine of Greece, in an area of 60 hectares, at 500 meters altitude, in the region of Riganokampos. In 1861 he founded the winery Achaia Clauss.
The factory today has several storage spaces, which can store up to 7500 tons of wine. The main components are: the storehouse with the old Mavrodaphne, the warehouse of table wines, the underground reservoirs and the store house of Daniilida.
If you visit it, do not forget to see the "imperial cellar," where all the barrels are souvenirs from the visits of Greek and foreign Kings.
