Cavino was founded in 1958 in Aigio by Konstantinos Anastasiou and Ioannis Douskas and it still remains under family ownership.

They primarily use indigenous grape varieties such as Roditis, Lagorthi, Sideritis, Agiorgitiko, Mavro Kalavrytino and they are a top producer and bottler of the famous Mavrodaphni. The vineyard slopes of Aigialia with the proximity of both the mountains and the sea provides an unique and special microclimate for these varieties plus international varieties such as Sauvignon blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Cavino have been distinguished as the best Greek winery by the reputable International Wine & Spirits UK and produce wines distributed in Greece and in 40 countries all over the world.

In 1999 Cavino added a premium estate to their portfolio, Domain Mega Spileo, with 11 hectares of high quality vineyard of the Mega Spileo Monastery (Grand Cave). References to this ‘Great Vineyard’ (Megali Ambelos) exist from 1550. Monks transported the must by mules up the steep incline to the monastery’s famous cellar. It is situated amidst mountaineous terrain on a plateau 780-880m near the Vouraikos canyon. Altitude and surrounding mountains mean that summers are cool, mild in the winter, vineyards are protected, snow melt/ rain provide natural irrigation and sea breezes flow down the canyon ensuring good health of the vineyard. Cavino’s main goal remains the promotion of the Greek vineyard (Aegialia especially), both in Greece and abroad and continuing commitment to the production of quality wines.
