Greece’s most famous and possibly most authentic wine is the traditional Retsina, with Attiki as the center of its production. Only specific regions can carry a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) on the labels. (or ΠΓΕ in Greek). Retsina can also be produced throughout Greece and according to Greek and European legislation is labelled as a Traditional Designation (one of the two in Greece) if not produced within one of the designated PGI zones.
Among these regions, Attiki stands out by producing Retsinas that, under certain prerequisites, are classified in the category of Protected Geographical Indication, PGI Retsina of Attiki (ΠΓΕ Ρετσίνα Αττικής). It was only quite recently that Attiki has become the focus of Retsina production, being nowadays the most important producer of this renown traditional style of wine.
