Although the oldest finds concerning wine undoubtedly come from Mesopotamia, Greece can justifiably be considered the cradle of wine for Central Europe. Venerable, but until recently strangely lacklustre, due not least to the fact that the country was occupied for centuries by the Turks, who hardly allowed any viticulture. As much as the wine industry used to stagnate, it now presents itself as active and forward-looking. This is not only due to the EU subsidies, which are also available to others, but for the most part to a noticeable desire to once again take a place in the wine world that is fair to the country. When more than 40 years ago Porto Carras (Halkidiki) started its work with the best trained oenologists, a renaissance of Greek viticulture began that has continued unbroken until today.
