The historic vineyard in Central Greece starts in the north from Thessaly, with mountainous vineyards on the slopes of Agrafa, Pelion, Ossa and Olympus, as well as around the rock formations of Meteora. The villages of Rapsani, Abelakia, Mesenikolas and Tyrnavos were known for their production, during the Ottoman rule and the 19th century. Going south, we find the vineyards of Viotia and Hesiod that were cultivated by him and informs us about the viticultural practices and wines of his era. Further down, into the vineyards of Attica and Evia, we find the ancient vineyards which were supplying Athens and other areas with wine since antiquity. In these vineyards the tradition of the production of Retsina was created during the last centuries.
