Created through the joint efforts of the
members of the Wine Producers Association of the Northern
Greece Vineyard, the Wine Roads of Northern Greece are a
pioneering project comprising wine roads that lead from
divine Mt. Olympus to Byzantine Thessaloniki and beguiling
Chalkidiki, from Epirus to distant Thrace.
seeking solutions for best suiting farming regions, the
project assists in the development and implementation of
sustained growth measures in wine-producing areas, the
establishment of folk museums, the publication of books and
the organisation of various cultural events directly linked
to Greek history, local festivities, customs and tradition.
Undertaking a multi-faceted project with the support of
the Community Project Leader II, WPANGV contributes to the
development of an enological education through various
activities such as mapping out tourist routes in the
Northern Greek region defining the spots of enological and
cultural interest, educating hospitality and food-service
rofessionals about wine, participating in international
companies and associations of the sector, sponsoring
gastronomical and cultural events and conferences,
participating in international fairs in Greece and abroad
and romoting the tourist products of the Wine Roads.
Archaeological sites, chapels, monasteries, museums and many
areas of cultural significance provide the background, while
along the wine roads restaurants, taverns, ouzo bars and
hotels complete the acquaintance with the Northern Greek
land, its products and its culture.
A valuable dietary item with great nutritional value for the
physical and spiritual wellbeing, the wine has played a key
role in the social life of Greeks since prehistoric times.
This gift from God to the Macedonian land has been an
integral part of Greece's history, art and customs.
So all you wine-lovers, captives of wine's magical
attraction and culture, are invited to visit and follow the
magnificent Wine Roads of Northern Greece.
