Cephalonian Wineries

Cephalonia is the fifth largest island in Greece by area, yet it is considered the most sparsely populated, with a huge mountain range in the middle of the island that cuts it in half creating many different micro-climates. Cephalonia is home to a number of wineries that produce a wide range of wines using traditional techniques and local grape varieties. Cephalonia island has a rich history in outstanding wine-making. The Art of Viticulture has deep roots in this soil, throughout the centuries people have been growing grapevines on the rocky hillsides of mountain Ainos. Cephalonia Wine Club is glad to present the most famous wineries of the island.

Enjoy the tour!
