About Georgos Greek Wines

Georgos Greek Wines are super premium wines made from Greek fruit handcrafted in Sonoma, CA. Georgos Greek wines know that part of making great wines is caring for the land and the people that make our wines. We have sustainable practices in place (i.e. dry farmed vineyards), and triple-sort our grapes for care and quality. UCLA’s institute of the Environment & Sustainability event was a great fit with our philosophy.
