Central Greece

This large wine-growing region in Greece includes the Attica peninsula (with the state capital Athens), the Boeotia region (Viotia or Vöotia) to the north and the second largest Greek island Euboea with 3,865 km². About one third of the Greek wine is produced in central Greece. Due to the warm and dry climate, there is not a great variety of varieties compared to the other Greek wine-growing regions. The main grape varieties are Savatiano and Roditis. This is the area and the home of the famous resin wine Retsina. It is also common to deliver fresh grape must to the restaurants and inns, which produce their own retsina from it. Large quantities of light white, rosé and red wines are also produced. However, there are no areas classified as POP (quality wine), but only as PGE (country wine).
