Greece’s wineries open cellars on European Wine Tourism Day, Nov 11

The wineries of the “Wine routes of Greece” along with hundreds of other European wineries will take part in the European Day of Wine Tourism on Sunday, November 11.

The visitors of the Greek wineries will tour the vineyards, meet Greek wine producers, admire the landscape, tour the facilities and taste new and aged wines, as well as learning about the fresh wines of the new harvest that has just completed.

Admission is free.

First to take action are the Wine Producers of Northern Greece, who will welcome visitors and connoisseurs wishing to sample the latest production, tour cellars and vineyards, as well as taste vintage varieties on Sunday, between 11am and 5pm.

Wines of Northern Greece is a member of the European Wine Cities Network (RECEVIN), and is participating in the event for the sixth consecutive year with its “Wine Roads of Northern Greece” program, which includes over 17 wineries and eight vineyard routes.
