In Greece, as is the case with all the nations situated in the Mediterranean basin, the tradition of wine is especially rich. Wine is associated not only with the nutritional habits of the Greek, but also with religious and popular traditions as well as with its cultural heritage.
In order to maintain and promote this heritage, a special form of Agrotourism -the Routes of the Wine- was developed, which suggests to the visitor to follow a carefully selected route, passing through the most picturesque areas of a viniculture zone and to visit select wine-producing units, to sample local wines accompanied by the traditional gustations of the region and to explore the traditional settlements, archaeological site, etc. This is a relatively new form of tourism that is in complete harmonization with the natural environment and is excellently organized, and who is planning to essentially learn about each place through the traditions of viniculture and wine-making.
Along the length of the journey, restaurants, tavernas, ouzeries and hotels provide quality hospitality and finish its acquaintance with Greece and its culture.
