The red grape variety comes from Greece. Synonyms are Arachovis, Arachovitiko Mavro, Arahovitikos, Mavro Arachovitiko, Mavroudi Arachovis Noir, Mavroudi d'Arachova, Mavroudi of Arachova. According to DNA analyses carried out in 2005, there is no (long suspected) relationship with the Bulgarian Mavrud (Mavroudi) or the Cypriot Mavro. The high-yield vine produces colourful, full-bodied red wines. It is cultivated in Boeotia in central Greece. However, no stocks were recorded in 2010 (statistics Kym Anderson).
