Greece has one of the longest wine making histories in the world. The history of wine in Greece is undeniably linked to the history of Greek civilization. Apart from being a staple of the Greek diet, along with bread and olive oil, wine is associated with all aspects of Greek social, economic, spiritual, religious and artistic life.
The vine may have originated elsewhere, but it was in Greece that it was cultivated and worshipped. And it was here that it became an integral part of people’s lives for almost four thousand years.
Did you know that Athens is the only European capital where vineyards and wineries lie within a stone’s throw from the city? Today, native and selected foreign varieties grow in the vineyards of Attica.
