Wine Roads of Northern Greece
Enjoy the natural beauty along the Wine Roads of Northern Greece and explore the history that infuses the entire region, from archaeological sites and monasteries to the wineries themselves. Discover restaurants, tavernas, hotels, local gourmet workshops and stores stocked with regional culinary specialties.
Travel through some of the most renowned Greek vineyards. Stop at celebrated wineries to sample your favourite wines right where they are produced. Meet the people who make them.
Seek out the traditional products of each region’s unique cuisine. You will be happily surprised to find tastes and aromas beautifully attuned to the locale.
The Wine Roads are really a series of suggested, select routes for the avid and curious traveler interested in visiting some of the most picturesque and fascinating venues in Europe.
On Sunday, November 12th, wineries of the Wine Routes of Greece participate in the European Day of Wine Tourism.
Visitors of wineries will have the opportunity to walk around wine regions, get to know Greek wine-producers, enjoy the scenery in beautiful vineyards, take a tour in wine production, maturation and ageing areas, try new and vintage wine and get an update on the fresh wines of this year’s harvest which has just been completed.
Our favorite one is of course the Route of Halkidiki! The Wine Route of Halkidiki starts at Agios Pavlos, moves on to the Kassandra, Sithonia and Mount Athos peninsulas and crosses the mountainous areas of Halkidiki, stoping at Arnea, before reaching the sea at the resort of Olimpiada in the east.
