Attica wineries along archaeological sites and ‘wine routes’

Attica vineyards have joined together to form the non-profit urban company ‘Wines of Athens’, through which they will seek to promote local varieties of wine and link them to Athens’ archaeological sites and attractions, through an organised system of “wine routes”.

The wineries in the initiative will also aim to produce quality vintages and highlight the local Savvatiano grape that grows in Attica.

The wineries 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.
