Meden Agan – The name of the wine stems from the well known ancient Greek motto at the Oracle of Delphi meaning ‘nothing in excess’. Meden Agan is derived from the word ‘meden’ (meaning ‘zero, nothing’) and the adverb ‘agan’ (translates to ‘excessively’).

Meden Agan and Gnothi Sauton (know thyself), the two maxims carved on the walls of the temple of Apollo at the Oracle, were the fundamental principles of the ancient Greek spirit.

The motto Meden Agan is attributed to Chilon of Sparta, one of the Seven Sages of the ancient world. Through this motto he wished to imply that the truth lies in the middle, without excess. It also brings to mind Aristotle's maxim " virtue lies in the middle " and the Latin " in medio virtus ". Pindar, the lyric poet, closely connected with the Oracle, also refers to this motto in his Odes.





Meden Agan has a clear, dark ruby red color characteristic of the agiorgitiko variety. It has a velvety, soft round taste with a long finish in the palate. This wine is ideal for long-term maturing. It should be served at 16°-18°C. It is an excellent accompaniment to red meats and hearty stews or casseroles. Our wine is distinctive and will especially appeal to people that appreciate quality. It is the perfect gift for your business associates, family and close friends. Five different packages are available :
