With a focus on collegiality and on the highest quality of bottled wine production, the members of the association “Winemakers of North Greece” hold annually a multitude of activities including wine tasting events, exhibitions and thematic wine tastings, educational seminars, wine tourism proposals and much more.
In addition, as a collective body, the Association is involved with actions concerning the wine legislation, development, promotion and protection of branded high-quality Greek wine, the PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) and PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) designations, the conscious choice of branded wine against anonymous bulk wine and, above all, the safe consumption.
