Among the white indigenous grape varieties which are successfully cultivated throughout the entire region are Malagouzia, Roditis, Savatiano, Moschofilero, while the island’s ecosystem which resembles that of the Cyclades wisely allows space for the Asyrtiko, Aydani, Monemvasia, Robola and Athiri varieties. Furthermore, the cosmopolitan Sauvignon blanc and Chardonnay partake in this multi-colored viticultural mosaic.
As regards Euboea’s “red brigades”, several indigenous varieties, such as Agiorgitiko, Limnio and Limniona have already adjusted extremely well to the island’s soil, while the Vradiano variety originating in the north is now silently gaining momentum in the southern slopes of the island. Among them Mandilaria features prominently, a forceful wine (also known as Koundoura Black) which gains new fans and international awards.
In addition, famous French varieties, such as the Mediterranean Syrah –one of the best in Greece–, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon feature in several bottled red wines.
