As part of efforts to promote the vineyards and wines of the island of Kefalonia, seven local wineries recently got together to form the Kefalonia Winemakers Association.
Also known as Kefalonia Wines, the association plans to organize activities and events throughout the year with the aim to enhance the brand name and promote the wines of Kefalonia and the nearby island of Ithaki to the public.
“The wines of Kefalonia and the PDO (protected designation of origin) varieties of Robola, Mavrodafni and Moschato are known worldwide for their long tradition and significant role in the culture of the island,” the association said.
“Wine tourism is a priority and the association aims to place Kefalonia among the world’s top wine destinations.”
Gastronomy and culture are also part of Greece’s wine tradition, and will be promoted through the association’s activities.
Kefalonia Wines will share everyday moments of the people working at the wineries, as well as the nature, local terroir and wine through social media.
The association is already active on facebook and instagram (@kefaloniawines).
The Kefalonia Winemakers Association consists of the following wineries: Foivos, Wines Of Greece; Gentilini Winery & Vineyards; Haritatos Vineyard; Orealios Gaea; Petrakopoulos Wines; Sarris Winery and Sclavos Wines.
