At “ΟινοΚεντρικά 2017", held on Sunday 26 November at the Hotel Grande Bretagne hotel, the wines of 22 established and new wineries of Attica, Viotia, Evia, Karditsa, Larissa, Trikala and Fthiotida were tested.
“ΟινοΚεντρικά” welcomed this year more than 1,100 visitors, who came in contact with “the Wines from the Mountains”, as the wines of this wide wine-producing region are identified, with its intense landscape and the vineyards on or around it. There are native and international grape varieties hosted, giving a large and wide range of wines, often with the common point of a massive, robust and exuberant character, similar to the mountain of their origin.
“Wine Bar” was the innovation of this year's event, where the guests could taste wines from Central Greece combined with local gastronomy products such as deli meats, fish roe, olives, smoked trout, mushrooms, stuffed grape leaves, dried figs and cheese.
The Union of Wine Producers of the Central Greece Vineyard (ENOAKE) started last year the group presentation of its wines in Athens, and this year’s event was a joint organization of ENOAKE, the Region of Central Greece and the Agro-Food Partnership of Central Greece.
