Viticulture in Attica has been in decline due to the rising urbanization. Nevertheless, 6.500 ha are still cultivated, making Attica the largest viticultural region in Central Greece.
Over the past few years, a good number of producers in Attica and Central Greece have been introducing the new and contemporary face of Savatiano, the result of significant work in the vineyards and wineries. It is with great pleasure to taste their fresh, easy-drinking wines. The aged ones are unexpectedly fresh with a metallic aftertaste.
