«Bibere humanum est, ergo bibamus» –
To drink is human, let us therefore drink

Kavala has been famous since antiquity for the cultivation and quality of its wine. Myth relates that the god Dionysus was worshipped on Mt Pangaion, while in the prehistoric settlement of Dikili Tash, near the archaeological site of Philippi, burnt grape seeds and peel that are 6,500 yearsold have been found!

The fertile soil, the climatological conditions and the proximity to the sea favour the production of excellent wines while the white grape varieties (Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Semillon) produce wines with character and rich aromas, which stand out in the domestic and international markets, achieving major distinctions.

Wines with a PGI (Protected Geographical Indication): Assyrtiko, Malagouzia, Muscat of Alexandria, Roditis, Viognier, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Trebbiano, Agiorgitiko, Lemnio, Moschomavro, Pamidi, Grenot Rose, Cabernet Fran, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah.

Types of PGI wines: white, rose, dry red, medium dry red, medium sweet, sweet.

The region also produces an excellent tsipouro (pomace brandy), made by small distillers.

The internationally recognised wineries of Kavala, some of which can be visited, offer high quality wines which should definitely be sampled!
