Attica vineyards form ‘wine routes’ around archaeological sites

Attica vineyards have united together in order to establish the non-profit urban company 'Wines of Athens', through which they will do their best to promote local varieties of wine and connect them to Athens' archaeological sites and attractions using  an organised system of "wine routes".

The wineries in the beginning will also aim to produce quality vintages and highlight the local Savvatiano grape that grows in Attica and will be open to visitors and allow taste tests of their wines, while also offering visitors an opportunity to buy wines on the spot.


The initiative includes some of the oldest wine makers in the vicinity of Greece's capital, including the Kokotou Estate, Anastasia Fragou Wineries, Markou Vineyards, Papagiannakou wineries and Mylona Microwinery.
