Are you a fan of wine and beautiful landscapes? Then Halkidiki is a place that will amaze you! It may be better known for its rich nutural landscape and beaches, but the truth is that it is a place that has excellent vineyards. An excursion to its wineries is enough to change the way you see Greece and its wines.
From the hills of Kassandra on the sunny slopes of Mount Meliton in Sithonia and the monasteries of Mount Athos, where monks have been cultivating grape wines for centuries, the deep tradition of viticulture in Halkidiki will impress you.
In all the wineries to be visited you will have the opportunity to walk in the vineyards and tour their infrastructure to see up close the production process. In addition, you will try different varietiesof wine that you probably did not even know existed (Malagouzia, Roditis, Xinomavro and Limnio, the oldest Greek variety).
Some of the local wines have won international awards and recognitions, so do not leave without getting – or even five – bottles of wine, which will make your friends at the table shout your name and congratulate you for your good taste!
