vine terrains

An old vine zone, where grape cultivations are registered in this region since 2,500 years ago. The region of Spata in ancient greek times was named Erxia, land of philosophic spirit of Xenophon and Isocrates, as well as land of spirit of the famous wine maker of Alcebiades.

Spread on the arid Attican marl terrains, the quality of grapes is rather due to the high calcium containt. The hot and dry climate (rainfall 350 - 400 mm/y), the low hill landscape and the vicinity to the sea, was early exploited into one of the biggest rigid greek vineyards. >"<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 
        sugar content. The oldest vineyards are those replanted onto R110 root 
        after the last paneuropean phylloxera of early '60s. Regional savatiano 
        crop is ranging to 3 - 5 t / ha.
