Markopoulo possesses a long-standing winemaking history. This is evidenced from references in ancient scripts from the 4th and 5th century BC. Further proof is the existence of the altar of Dionysus, inside the Temple of Artemis in Vravrona. This is the place where the rural “Dionysia Festivals” were celebrated, one of the most important festivities dedicated to the god.
The Savatiano grape variety dominates the vineyards. The PGI Markopoulo is only reserved for the production of dry white wines. Although most of the wines are varietal Savatianos, there are also other options such as monovarietals or blends with Assyrtiko, Athiri, Roditis, Malagousia and Aidani.
