UWC of Samos

The UWC Samos is one of the oldest cooperatives in Greece and it is included in one of the biggest wineries nationally! Samos wine is one of the basic “Greek wine ambassadors” abroad, with exports all over the world. Nowadays, 2200 producers participate in the Cooperative as members.

It was founded in 1934 after actions taken by the vine growers of the island. The history of the Samos Cooperative through time proves that the alliance of the vine growers was a strategically important move for the preservation of viticulture and the protection of the producers’ income.

The UWC Samos receives the grapes, produces the wine and trades almost the entire production of the island. In search of constant modernization, it invests in technology, in harmonious combination with traditional viticulture and winemaking and in compliance with ISO and HACCP certifications.

The wines of Samos have obtained hundreds of distinctions in international competitions and fairs. It is also worth noting, that the first award was received in 1937, while every year additions were made on the long list of international honorary awards and distinctions.

Since its founding, the UWC Samos receives the grapes and produces exquisite wines from WHITE MUSCAT in two modern wineries in Malagari (the capital of the island) and Karlovassi (the second largest town) with a total capacity of 20.000 tons.

In 2004, the continuous search led to new crops of Greek native varieties such as Malagouzia, Moschato Alexandria, Assyrtiko, and Agiorgitiko while in 2008 the also Greek varieties Moschomavro and Limnio were added and in 2014 the variety Pinot noir. The average annual production is approximately 5.000.000 litters while exports constitute 70% of the production.
