Agiorgitiko

The red grape variety originates from Greece. Synonyms are Aghiorghitico, Aghiorgitiko, Ayoriyitiko, Bacouri, Bakouri, Bakouros, Mavraki, Mavro, Mavro Nemeas, Mavrostaphylo Mavraki, Mavroudi Nemeas, Mbacoura, Mbakoura, Mpakouri, Mpakouros, Nemeas Mavro, Nemeas Mavroudi, St. George, St. George vine. The town of Nemea in the appellation of the same name used to be called Agios Georgis (Saint George), which gave this variety its name. However, the grape variety name must not be confused with the similarly named designation of origin Agioritikos from the Holy Mountain Athos (Chalkidike peninsula). The exact origin is assumed to be in the areas of Argolis and Korinthia in the Peloponnese. However, the ancestry (parentage) is unknown. According to one hypothesis, it or an ancestor was already cultivated in ancient Greece.
