PGI Letrini (ΠΓΕ Λετρίνοι)

In the district of Ilia, in the central part of western Peloponnese, the PGI Letrini (ΠΓΕ Λετρίνοι) zone, established in 1993, comprises the areas of the municipalities of Iardanos and Pyrgos.

A stone’s throw from the Ionian Sea, the PGI Letrini zone lies halfway down Ilia’s western side. The Refosco cultivar which, in recent years, has been drawing the attention of other zones as well, was first planted and cultivated here.
