We have chosen three regions on the Peloponnese, in the south of Greece, and Attica, one of the oldest wine-producing regions close to Athens. Athens is surrounded by small historical vineyards that are dotted around the city’s landscape. Many of them can be reached within a short drive from the center of the capital.
A visit to the Peloponnese wineries can be combined with a stay in a mountain village, and excursions to archeological sites, monasteries or museums.
The first reference to the wine tradition of the Peloponnese came from Homer who called it Ampeloessa, meaning “full of vines.” Neither wars nor phylloxera were able to stop the production of wine here in one of the most historic wine regions of Greece. Spread throughout hillsides, plains and plateaus, the vineyards of the Peloponnese are known for their diversity and complexity
