Mesogaia is located in the eastern part of Attiki, including the sub-regions of Paiania, Spata, Kantza, Pikermi, Pallini, Rafina, Koropi, Keratea and Markopoulo. Despite the area’s recent urbanization and the newly built international airport of Athens, that greatly reduced the vineyard area, this still remains the largest vineyard of Attiki. Mesogaia means the middle land, due to the fact that the area is located between the seas of Southern Evoikos and Saronic Gulfs. It is one of the driest and hottest wine regions of Greece. It receives an annual 2,900 hours of sunshine and average rainfall is less than 400-450mm per year. However, the sea’s influence becomes very pronounced and strong winds (meltemia) moderate the summer heat.
Soils are diverse and vary even within small distances. The underlying rock is of limestone origin and is relatively close to the surface.
