Central Greece

To this great winegrowing region in Greece count the peninsula Attica (with the city of Athens), the north of the region Boötien (Viotia or Vöotia) and with 3,865 km ² second largest Greek island of Euboea. Central Greece produces about a third of Greek wine. Due to the warm and dry climate there is no great variety of varieties compared to the other Greek wine regions. The main grape varieties are Savatiano and Roditis, Here is the area and home of the famous Harz wine Retsina, It is also common, fresh grape to deliver to the restaurants and inns that make their own retsina. In addition, large quantities of light white, rosé and red wines are produced. But there are none as POP (Quality wine), but only as PGE (Landwein) classified areas.
