The Greek island (Greek: Zakynthou) is the third largest and southernmost of the Ionian archipelago and covers 400 square kilometres. On the east side there are wide sandy beaches, the west side has a up to 300 meters very steep rocky coast, in between lies a mountain range. The climate is characterized by sufficient rainfall. Here almost exclusively autochthonous grape varieties are cultivated, these are Agiomavritiko, Areti, Asprouda, Avgoustiatis, Goustolidi, Kakotrygis, Katsakoulias, Korinthiaki, Pavlos (Malvasia Bianca Lunga) and Skiadopoulo. The specially produced traditional white wine Verdea is made from different varieties. There are the PGE (country wine) areas Metaxata, Patras, Trifylia and Verntea Zakynthou (Verdea Zakynthos), but no appellations classified as POP (Prostatevomenis Onomasías Proelefsis) (quality wines). In addition, a large quantity of table grapes and raisins are also produced. Well-known producers include Komoutos, Solomos, Verdea and Voultsos. North of Zakynthos is the island of Kefallonia.
