Zone vineyards are planted at altitudes ranging from 150 to 800 meters.

The area of Kalambaka, in the northwestern part of the district of Trikala, has a long tradition in winegrowing. Its hub is the village of Kastraki which is renowned for its red wines and lies south of the towering rocks of Meteora.
