It is not a coincidence that the god Dionysus is thought to have sprung from this region as Thrace and Macedonia have long been the centers of the Dionysian cult.

The situation has changed in favor of viticulture just in the last few decades.... Read more.
The Pindos mountain range in the west and the boundaries with Thrace in the east make up northern Greece's geographical region. In addition to native cultivars, such as Xinomavro, the most noble red produced by the vineyards of northern Greece, the vineyards of Macedonia (Drama, Kavala, Halkidiki, Goumenissa, Naoussa, Amynteo) also host cultivars of foreign origin, producing some of the best Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Syrah varieties produced in Greece. ...

In Epirus, viticulture and winemaking have existed since the fifteenth century. Although its wine output is less than that of other areas of the country in terms of quantity, this is not the case for quality.

Almost all of the Ionian Islands have a long history of making wine, but Cephalonia is the pioneer and produces the best-known and highest-quality wines in the region. With Zakynthos being the birthplace of the Traditional Designation Verdea wine, produced on the island since the 19th century, the other Ionian Islands also have interesting wines. In Zakynthos, the red Avgoustiatis variety is also widely grown. ... Read more.
There are numerous regions all over the world that claim to make "terroir" wines, but very few can assert that nature influences their wines in the Aegean Islands in the same profound way. Some of the most distinctive wine styles may be traced back to the winds, a superb blend of rare grape varieties, and an incredibly complex matrix of soils that were brutally molded up until very recently by earthquakes and volcanoes...

As one of the most important wine-producing areas, Crete has gradually contributed to the new era of Greek wine. Crete is a driving force behind a bright future for Greek wines thanks to its many unique grape types, size as the most significant island in Greece for wine production, extraordinarily complicated landscape, and popularity as a tourist destination...

Most of the vineyards in Santorini are found in the southern and southwestern part of the island, on soil of volcanic origin (Therean ash and pumice) and sandy composition, with virtually zero moisture capacity and organic matter -which explains the absence of phylloxera. White varieties hold sway in the vineyards of Santorini, with Assyrtiko being the most prominent cultivar on 1,700 acres and the aromatic ... Read more
