Winemaking in northern Greece

The northern regions of Greece boast of some of the oldest winemaking traditions, and for good reason. The valleys of epirus, macedonia, and thrace have a favorable climate, which allows for the cultivation of unique grape varieties. These regions produce an array of delightful beverages with a wide range of delectable aromas and flavors. You can find dozens of these drinks, all with their own unique character.

Wine and dining

At eateries and fine restaurants, wine is a common accompaniment to lunch and dinner. Connoisseurs come from all over the world to enjoy the experience. Northern vineyards produce grapes that are resilient to the difficult climate, and drinks made from them have a crisp taste and a fruity aroma. Enjoying these wines often requires local cheeses, which are only produced in this region.
