Vineyards of Greece

The vineyards of Greece are some of the oldest in the world, with great history, and cultivated continuously for thousands of years. The vineyards are located in almost every part of the mainland and islands of the country, favored by all geo-climatic conditions. The Mediterranean climate of the country, combined with the positive effect of the sea decisively affect the vineyards in coastal and inland areas.

Vineyards of Greece have different soil types, with dramatically different terrains, ranging from sea level and surpassing 1,000meters. The majority of vineyards are located in mountainous or Semi-mountainous grounds and less are located in lowlands.

Unifying small Greek wine growing areas in larger geographical divisions, the vineyards of northern Greece, Central Greece, the Peloponnese, the islands of the Ionian Sea, the Aegean islands and Crete, are formed. These vineyards are the result of the unification of many small vineyards with their own special soil and climatic characteristics, which in conjunction with indigenous grape varieties, offer to the Greek wines a sense of uniqueness.
