It is cultivated almost exclusively in Nemea, in the north eastern Peloponnese. Moderately vigorous and productive variety. It ripens in mid to late September, depending on the location and performance of vineyard.

The Agiorgitiko variety is commonly described as "multi-dynamic” because it can, depending on altitude, soil composition and individual production methods offer excellent rosé wines, fresh red, deep aged reds, sweet or semi-sweet wines, which are always a pleasant surprise to the palate.

The wines have a deep red color and an aroma characterized by red fruits (such as ripe strawberries), black currants and caramel. Aged wines have the aroma of jams or dried fruit such as figs, prunes, raisins. The tannins are soft and develop over time.
