Thessaloniki Plans First Wine Harvest

Thessaloniki is about to debut its first production of wine ever, after the city planted four grape varieties in a vineyard near the Kaftantzoglio Stadium.

The wine making efforts were conducted by the municipality, along with the Viticulture Laboratory of the School of Agriculture of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, that began in April 2013.  Now that its wine harvesting season, the city's vineyard will offers required raw materials for the harvest of Thessaloniki's first wine batch.

Greece's second largest city has called on all of its residents to present name ideas via email at: This email address is being protected from spambots.
