The book, published by Paper City, is called “Mavrodafni” and is a fascinating book that combines history and fiction in a unique way, and as you might guess from the name, it is about the famous wine Mavrodafni. It was developed by Gustavos Klaus and to this day Achaia remains perhaps Klaus’ most famous wine range.

His dreams were of land and vines, and shortly after arriving in Patras, Gustav Klaus made them come true. His love for Daphne was crazy, but it ended tragically. And to honor him, he named his best wine Mavrodaphni. Her marriage to Thomas, one of the ladies of Queen Amalia’s Palace, and the arrival of her daughters filled her life with light again.

He built his castle town just outside of Patras with stone, mud and the best craftsmen. Little Rinio, who lived there with his family, became inseparable friends with Gustavus’ daughter Amalia. Years pass, Gustavos dies, but he is always a reference point in the fortress state. Where a terrible secret has been hidden for years.
