The Demestica (brand name in Latin, Greek Δεμέστιχα Demesticha , after the village of the same name in the Achaean municipality of Erymanthos ) is the best-known brand of Greek wine .

The wine is mentioned in Fritz Goldschmidt's The Wine from the Vine to Consumption of 1906. In its heyday, production lasted from the late 1970s to the early 1980s, when around 20 million bottles were mostly sold through supermarkets at home and abroad. These wines were a simple table wine , often a blend of different red or white wines .

The Patras- based winery Achaia Clauss was once known for Demestica wines .
