Athens Wine Tours

Take a break from your tight business schedule or spend a day besides visiting the cultural sites of Athens while you are on holidays to discover interesting local wine varieties. Athens, the Capital of Greece, is producing a variety of PGI* wines. The two major viticultural zones are Mesogeia and North Attica. The main variety of the region is Savatiano, a white variety, followed by Roditis, Assyrtiko, Malagousia and Chardonnay. In this region we will also find the following red varieties of Agiorgitiko, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. The zone also produces the known Retsina (a resinated wine).

 

You will have the chance to see nice wineries that have adopted modern vinification methods, meet the people who recount intriguing stories about the history of wine in the region and most importantly get introduced to the local wine varieties.
