The Porto Carras Grand Resort, part of the Porto Carras group, which includes the Domaine Porto Carras wineries, was singled out among nominees from nine other countries for the high quality enotourism services offered.
The resort, within close range of the group’s wineries, offers visiting connoisseurs a chance to participate in the wine making process, taste the latest offerings accompanied by local products and tour the region’s vineyards through the “Wine Routes of Halkidiki”.
The distinction comes after a series of firsts for the group, including that of the Domaine’s Limnio wine, which was singled out during a blind taste test ahead of the annual ProWein wines and spirits trade fair set to take place in Dusseldorf, Germany, on March 15-17.
Built in 1970, the Porto Carras winery and its vineyards have contributed greatly to the growth of the Greek wine industry. It is here, that University of Bordeaux professor Emile Peynaud lent a helping hand in developing the first “Greek” Cabernet Sauvignon.
