The history of the Greek wine dates back to the 3rd millennium BC. For example, the ancient Greeks were masters in winemaking and monopolized the winery for centuries trading both in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. Today the prefecture of Evia is home to many wineries, producing remarkable labels and international awards from private producing companies and local cooperatives. They are scattered throughout the county, particularly on the island of Central & Southern Evia and recently wine’s intense activity in Evia . As for wine tourism in many wineries and cooperatives it is possible to visit and taste the wine during the harvest season with arranged accommodation. Well known wine festivals are held in Vassiliko - Central Evia and Karysto - North Evia, where they are organized in late August to early September, by wine cooperatives and the visitor have the opportunity to taste the local wine and food accompanied by live folk music.
