Greece has arguably one of the longest wine histories in the world as wine has always been an integral part of Greek culture since antiquity. Greece might not be the first country to produce wine, but what can be attributed to Ancient Greece is the development of a culture encompassing all aspects of wine: vine growing, production, legislation, trading and, of course, the art of consuming wine.
Greek vineyards are among the world’s oldest and have produced wines for thousands of years. Vineyards are found on diverse soil and terrain, at altitudes varying between sea level and often in excess of 1,000m. They can be described as viticultural “isles” which dot the entire country, continental and island areas alike.
The veteran Greek viticulturists, with the valuable wisdom and their considerable experience, have seen the entry into their sector in recent decades of a new generation of colleagues, who may not have the choppy handsof the elders but do possess scientific knowledge and visions from their contact with famous educational institutions and important winegrowing plots in the world.
Over time, the countless Greek terroirs of both continental and island Greece, the hundreds of native cultivars yielding wine grapes, and the country’s age-old practice of winegrowing have come to form the historic vineyards of Greece.
