Greek Wine Regions

Lying between 33'ºand 40º north, Greek vineyards are in the hotter zones, but this is often alleviated by the influence of the sea and sometimes by planting at considerable height, 650m (2,145ft) or more. Climatic conditions tend to be stable, but there are still vintage variations.

Generally the soil is poor, with no predominant type. It is usually rocky, with chalk, schist, loam, clay, sand and, particularly on some of the islands, notably Santorini, with volcanic subsoil and pumice.
