The “Malvasia Festival Monemvasia” is the first international Malvasia Festival based in Monemvasia, devoted to the most famous wine in history. Inspired by the verse of the Monemvasian poet, Yannis Ritsos “And what was it? Reversed time?”, the Festival marks the Malvasia’s return to its birthplace, Monemvasia, which Yannis Ritsos called “the stone ship”.
The Festival is organized following the three elements that compose the Malvasia Myth, “Wine – History – Art”. Visitors are invited to a three-day celebration to initiate into the Myth of the most famous wine.
