The establishment of Greek wine agencies began after World War II. The Federation of Greek Wines and Spirits Industries (SEVOP) was established in 1949. In 1995, due to the difference in the dynamics of its products, the Federation was divided into the Greek Federation of Spirits Producers (SEAOP) and the Greek Wine Federation (SEO). SEO, in tandem with the Central Cooperative Union of Viticultural Products (KEOSOE), which was established in 1949, constitute the National Inter-Professional Organization of Vine and Wine (EDOAO), the leading wine agency in Greece (est.2000).
