PGI Zakynthos (ΠΓΕ Ζάκυνθος)

In the southern Ionian Sea, the PGI Zakynthos (ΠΓΕ Ζάκυνθος) zone covers the entire island of the same name. The vineyards must be at altitudes of over 20 m.

The best known wine from Zakynthos is the traditional Verdea, which is now a PGI wine. However, in Zakynthos, in addition to the white varieties used in producing Verdea, many other white and red indigenous and largely rare varieties are also cultivated, such as Moschatel, Migdali and mainly Avgoustiatis, which is the characteristic and very promising red variety of the island. As such, under the PGI Zakynthos designation established in late 2010, the island’s significant wine production has acquired an identity that extends beyond the Verdea variety.
