The region of Attica is one of the oldest in terms of winemaking. According to legend, it is here that Dionysus presented wine to the Greeks. If you want to feel the atmosphere of the grape harvest, between late September through October, come to the large wineries of the region at this time. For example, Matsa Estate is a historic 12 hectare vineyard located in Kantza near Athens that always welcomes visitors. The town of Pikermi also boasts the Megapanos Winery. You can also visit other wineries located further from Athens.
