Spread on the center arid Attican peninsula of limestone blocks on clay marl terrains, the quality of grapes is excellent buquet due to the high calcium containt. The hot and dry climate (rainfall 350 - 450 mm/y), the mild hilly landscape as well as the vicinity to the sea, was very early exploited into one of the biggest rigid greek vine terrains. >"<em>Savatiano</em>" 
        or "<em>Sabatiano</em>" is traditionally the indigenous white 
        grape variety fully adapted in the region, assigned to full body and high

        crop is ranging to 3 - 5 t / ha.
