PGI Corfu

At Greece’s westernmost tip, the PGI Corfu zone (est.1996) comprises the homonymous island in the northern segment of the Ionian Sea.

The vineyards of Corfu are planted mostly in the northern and southern part of the island. Smaller vineyards exist in the island’s southwestern part as well in the area of the Korissia lagoon. Kakotrygis, Corfu’s popular white variety, is exclusively cultivated on the island and receives preferential treatment by winegrowers. Four wineries produce PGI Corfu wines but the amounts are small and suffice for the local community’s needs alone.
