UWC Samos

The United Winemaking Agricultural Cooperative of Samos (UWC Samos) is one of the oldest cooperatives in Greece and one of the biggest greek wineries.

About the winery
The UWC Samos receives the grapes, produces the wine and trades almost the entire production of the island. In search of constant modernization, it invests in technology and know-how, in harmonious combination with traditional viticulture and winemaking and in compliance with ISO and HACCP certifications. The wines of Samos have obtained hundreds of distinctions in international competitions and fairs. It is worth noting that the first award was received in 1937, while every year more are added on the long list of international honorary awards and distinctions. The wine from Samos Muscat holds one of the oldest origin-controlled appellations in Europe (Protected Designation of Origin Samos).
