Viticultural zone of Rapsani

Sort by Tags |

Within the district of Larissa are found the semi-mountainous and mountainous terroirs of Rapsani, at altitudes ranging from 150m to 750m on the southeastern slopes of lower Olympus. Traditionally, the vineyards were planted with approximately 1/3 of all three varieties of this PDO zone each (Xinomavro, Krassato, Stavroto) and that practice is still active today. PDO Rapsani is the southernmost and the smallest of the four PDO zones where the Xinomavro grape is grown.
