Greek Wineries

The production of wine in Greece is one of the oldest in the world. The combination of soil and climate has allowed its rise and the oldest texts of Greek literature as the Iliad and the Odyssey bear witness. The earliest Greek wines have been dated to 6,500 years, their development corresponding to the needs of a family or a small community. Following the advances of the Greek civilization, their production and commercialization took a great extent. Archaeological excavations have proved that wine consumption has been effective throughout the Mediterranean. He acquired a very high prestige in Italy under the Roman Empire. This reputation lasted until the Middle Ages, when wines exported from Greece or its islands were considered the only ones worthy of the royal or pontifical tables in Western Europe.
