Greek Wine Regions
Explore Greece
Cyclades Islands
The Cyclades Islands (meaning `circular islands`) are the most famous island group in the Aegean Sea that comprise some of the most stunning islands in the world! Beautiful sandy beaches, architecture in white and blue, traditional lifestyle, folk music, warm, hospitable people and barren landscapes with isolated chapels turn a trip to the Cyclades into a lifetime experience.
Mainland Greece
Because of its geographical position, Greece was a crossroad of civilizations that had left their traces everywhere: the architecture of the museums and settlements, daily life, food customs, art, and the amazing scenery in the various cities the mainland has to offer. Discover the interesting cities of the mainland such as Athens, a modern city that thrives in the shadow of the Acropolis. And not to forget the ruins of Delphi, Olympia and Meteora, all reminders of the great civilization that once existed in Greece.
Saronic Islands
The Saronic islands, which include Hydra and Aegina, are the islands closest to Athens in Greece. This group of islands is a small, relatively sheltered gulf between Attica and the Peloponnese. You could describe them as “the islands off Athens”. There are a total of about 20 islands and islets in the Saronic Gulf, of which only 6 are inhabited. These islands are best known for their rich history, wealthy captains, neoclassical architecture and cosmopolitan character.
Dodecanese Islands
Only a short distance from Turkey`s Turquoise Coast in the southeastern Aegean, the Dodecanese chain of islands lies in what is called the sunniest corner of Greece. With twelve larger islands and numerous smaller uninhabited islands and islets, the Dodecanese Islands have the right mix of tourism and tradition, a fascinating history, two UNESCO World Heritage sites and stunning landscapes.
Ionian Islands
The Ionian Islands is a cluster of six isles that are linked in a chain down the west coast of Greece. It is not only stunningly scenic but also has a character of its own that is set apart from other Greek islands. These islands are much lusher and greener than most of the other Greek islands. Adventure seekers, food lovers, culture seekers and beach bums, paradise awaits you in the Ionian Islands.

The coastlines of southern Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa are shaped by the Mediterranean Sea.

Europe is home to hundreds of breathtaking islands scattered within and around the continent that range from long established celebrity hotspots to lesser-known hidden gems.

Experiences and Adventure
Greek Cuisine
Food is a huge part of Greek culture. The cuisine offers an incredibly rich and diverse array of foods and beverages that are the culmination of thousands of years of living, cooking, and eating. Flavors of Greek food change with season and geography, however, fresh vegetables, fishes and seafood always play a significant role in the dishes, mostly because of its long coastline.
Iconic Greek Road Trips
Many people associate Greece travel with island-hopping by ferry, but taking an iconic Greek road trip is a great way to get off the beaten track and experience this enchanting country. Not only will it give you more flexibility with your itinerary, it will allow you to visit small villages, remote archeological sites, and vineyards and tavernas - there's so much more to Greece than its beaches. So jump in the car and hit the road on the mainland in Greece for a fantastic adventure!
City and Beach Holidays in Greece
Greece is a country where historic ruins, volcanic cliffs, and friendly locals meet the blue Mediterranean Sea. It`s the whole package spread out amongst thousands of gorgeous islands. Discover the historical heritage on a major European capital in Athens before taking in the whitewashed villages of the islands where you`ll find ample opportunities to enjoy swimming, eating and gazing at the deep-blue Aegean.
UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Greece
Western civilization was born in Greece over 4,000 years ago. It therefore comes as no surprise that this ancient land is home to 18 amazingly unique UNESCO Sites to visit. From Bronze Age citadels and the sacred Acropolis of Athens (on which stands the Parthenon, chosen by UNESCO as its official emblem), to Byzantine monasteries and Venetian fortresses, Greece’s ongoing efforts to protect and curate its sites and monuments is testament to the tireless work of archaeologists, conservators and heritage managers across the country.

WHY GREEK WINE REGIONS?

In ancient times, Greece was one of the most important wine making regions. Wine is closely related to Greek culture and religion with a much more diverse climate and terrain than most people realize. Vineyards grow on flat land, on terraced volcanic islands, and up mountain slopes, producing white (70% of total production), red, and sweet wine. With such a diverse climate, you can expect Greek wines to be quite varied as well. Out of the 700 wineries in Greece, only a few can produce enough to export, so many excellent wines come from small-producers and go undiscovered outside of Greece. The country is a bit of a mystery to many wine drinkers, who may be limited by their knowledge of the region, grape varieties, or simply the pronunciation. However, one visit to Greece, sipping dry white wine of Santorini Island, sampling rosé on a Peloponnese road trip, indulging in sparkling wines in the mountainous north, or discovering the reds of Crete: there is something for every taste. Learn more about the key destinations with this wine guide.
