Wine Tours in Greece
Greek wine history follows the course of Greek history itself since very few nations of the world have the vineyard and wine “in their blood” as the Greeks do, from prehistoric times until today, based on documents, findings, records etc. Therefore the recordings of the cultivation of grapevines (viticulture) in Greece and its history, is probably the longest history in the world.
An association of Wine Roads was developed in Greece at the beginning of the 1990s. The association was created by wine producers in the regions of Macedonia and was then extended to Epirus, Thessaly and Thrace. Its main purpose has been the promotion of wine companies and the association’s regional members, while its specific targets have been the development of local tourism, the support of cultural heritage and the improvement of product quality and related services.
