PGI Spata (ΠΓΕ Σπάτα)

The demarcated area for the production of PGI Spata (ΠΓΕ Σπάτα) wines includes the village of Spata, in Eastern Attica, at an altitude of more than 50 meters above sea-level.

The characteristics
Spata is located in the heart of the Mesogia plain. It is a relatively flat viticultural zone; however some vineyards are planted in low undulating hills. The altitude can reach 200m above sea-level. Most of the area’s vineyards are in great proximity to the sea. The climate is hot Mediterranean with lack of rainfall during the summer. The South Euboean Gulf results in beneficial sea breezes that cool down the extremes of the hot climate.
