Region Description:

Greece is one of the oldest wine producing regions in the world. The earliest evidence of Greek wine has been dated to 6,500 years ago where wine was produced on a household or communal basis. At that time wine was exported to Europe as a treasured drink, but now days it is competing in a world market. In the 1960's Retsina put Greece back on the map and became their national beverage. Important Regions Include Macedonia, Patras, Santorini, Samos, Crete, and the Agean Islands.
