Magnisia

South of the city of Volos, on the coastal areas overlooking Pagasitikos Gulf in Magnisia the most widespread, Greek white cultivar, Roditis, is planted in deep, limey-clayey soil. Most of the vines are traditionally trained into tall-trunk goblets, while more recent plantings are trained in a linear manner. The Roditis clone cultivated in the vineyards of Anchialos differs from the traditional Roditis since, when fully mature, it does not acquire the variety’s characteristic blush color and is known as “green Roditis.” A handful of acres planted with Savvatiano complete the vine profile of the vineyards of Anchialos.
