Wine has been an important part of Greek culture for over 4000 years as the numerous archeological discoveries throughout Greece indicate.
In recent years, the Greek wine industry has undergone tremendous improvements with serious investments in modern wine making technology. The new generation of native winemakers is being trained in the best wine schools around the world and their efforts are paying off as Greek wines continue to receive the highest awards in international competitions as well as the recognition they deserve throughout the world.
There are more than 300 indigenous grape varieties grown there, some of which have been cultivated since ancient times.
This extensive variety of grapes together with the moderate Greek climate, plentiful sunshine, low average rainfall and soils of moderate fertility combine to provide an excellent environment for the production of high quality wines.
