Wine Tourism in Northern Greece: Pella – Goumenissa

Northern Greece holds great treasures to nature enthusiasts, due to the unspoiled landscapes and the vast green fields all around. If you are interested in viticulture, you will be particularly fascinated by the special wine road of Pella and Goumenissa, starting from Pella and going all the way to Kilkis with Goumenissa and Giannitsa. On the slopes of Paiko mountain, at an altitude reaching 1,650 meters above sea level, you will find Goumenissa. This is a lovely quaint village, producing some of the finest red grape varieties in the country. More specifically, you will find Roditis, Xynomavro and Negoska in the wider area and the result is a true blessing for your palate.
