      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      One of the most frequent wine questions come from people who want to like wine but can't acquire a taste for dry, acidic table wines in the classic European tradition: "Isn't there a red wine that's sweet?" The answer is yes! Here is a Greek red wine that is modestly priced, fairly easy to find in retail wine shops, and distinctly sweet. We are talking about "Mavrodaphne". Mavrodaphne is a very sweet red wine originating from the Achaia region in Peloponnese, Greece. It has a very pleasant fruity taste in combination with the most sensational herbaceous aromas. Mavrodaphne is one of the favorite wines of Greeks and of those when visited Greece tasted it. Thus, Mavrodaphne has its own devotees throughout the world. The wine named "Mavrodaphne" comes from Peloponnese and its origins go back to 1861 when Clauss Gustav established its company in Achaia region. Achaia Clauss as it was the name of the company, and still is, was a wine-producing company. In this area their used to be vineyards of red grapes called Mavrodaphne. From these red grapes came to life for the first time this special sweet red wine. The years that followed the production of Mavrodaphne were very intensively creating large amounts and making the product known throughout the country. Day by day, till this very day, the product became famous all over the world due to its unique taste and its excellent quality. In Greece, this sweet wine is very often used not only to accompany food but also to be drunk on special occasions such as weddings or even as a mass wine in church. A bottle of Mavrodaphne in England costs about £5 or £6 and can serve a few people because its delicate taste does not allow it to be had in gulps with the aim of getting drunk only. This is a drink for people that are ready to truly enjoy wine.
