Wine Growing Regions in Greece
We import from the Macedonia, Peloponnese, Santorini and Crete wine regions. These regions are on similar latitudes as Napa, California. All have a type of volcanic soil and/or sand and clay which are ideal for growing world class wines. The vineyards of Domaine Porto Carras are located on the western coast of the Sithonia peninsula in Halkidiki, Greece; the Macedonia wine region. At the point where the lush slopes of Mount Meliton slope to meet the clear waters of the Gulf of Torone, over 1100 acres of stunning terraced vineyards make-up one of the largest and most picturesque vineyards in Greece. The waters of the Aegean Sea and Mediterranean moderate the temperatures of this Mediterranean region. The volcanic soils of Crete bring forth the most delicious floral aromatic Moschifilero wine, an ancient indigenous white variety. The wines of this region are aromatic and refreshing! Most memorable! The wines of Naoussa bring forth rich, bold red wines and distinct ancient varietals such as the Xinomavro (Sin-Oh-ma-vrow).
