Geografical review
 

The coasts of Halkidiki are surrounded by stunning beaches 500 km long, its hills and mountains are lush with dense forests. Although it is only an hour away from Thessaloniki, Halkidiki is a natural paradise untouched by the harmful effects of modern technology and culture. A place of contrasts, where endless, sandy beaches alternate with idyllic cliffs flanked by rocks. The air is scented by the forests with the firs and the salt of the sea.

The climate of Halkidiki is soft. It is typically Mediterranean, with large, warm summers and mild winters. The Aegean Sea that embraces the three-foot coasts of Halkidiki (Kassandra, Sithonia and Athos) sends its cool breeze to the hills of the hinterland.

The light, rich in sandy, sandy soil of Halkidiki is characterized by subsoil rich in calcium, good structure and water permeability. These factors are an excellent basis for the growth of grapes, enhancing the aromas of the wines produced by them and helping to balance their flavor.
