Wines, Halkidiki

Ancient Halkidiki was famous for its wines since the 5th century BC, with Aristotle himself having planted a vineyard in Stagira, is hometown. Today, modern Halkidiki is just as famous for its quality wines, thanks to great climatic conditions and to amazing vineyards in Mount Athos, Central Halkidiki and elsewhere in the region. The local ancient Limnio grape and the Xinomavro make superb red wine, but so do the happily imported French grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Taste the whites made with Assyritiko, Athiri and Roditis. There's a network of wine roads and vineyards.
