Wine Roads and Alternative Tourism

(GREEK NEWS AGENDA) Wine Roads of Northern Greece is a proposal which combines wine tasting and alternative tourism. It consists of eight vinicultural routes, which take you from Mount Olympus and Epirus to Byzantine Thessaloniki and the landscapes of Halkidiki and from Amynteo in the north-west to Thrace in the far north-east. It offers escape from the urban routine, indulgence in good food, friendly people and stunning landscapes. Signs point the way to vineyards and wineries where visitors are introduced into the world of wine and initiated into the secrets of its enjoyment. Prominent local varieties, include Xinomavro, Agiorgitiko, Athiri, Moschofilero and many others.
