PGI Tyrnavos (ΠΓΕ Τύρναβος)

The PGI Tyrnavos (ΠΓΕ Τύρναβος) zone, established in 1990 in the district of Larissa, mainland region of Thessalia, comprises the areas of Argyroupoulio, Damasi, Tyrnavos, Ambelonas, Vryotopos, Deleria and Rodia in the Ambelonas municipality.

The area of Tyrnavos in the central western part of the district of Larissa is one of region’s most important winegrowing zones. The main varieties cultivated have traditionally been that of pink skinned Roditis and of the red Muscat de Hambourg. In more recent years, other native and foreign cultivars have been successfully cultivated, as the 2004 revision of PGI Tyrnavos wine indicates. These newcomers include the red Limniona variety, which is now one of the most promising red indigenous grapes.
