Wines in Achaia, Greece
There are four AOC wines produced in this region. These are the dry white wine called Patra and made with the Roditis grape, two sublime white dessert wines known as Moschato Rio and Moschato Patron, and last but not least the well-known Mavrodaphne, a strong and sweet red wine made from Mavrodaphne and Corinthian grapes.
Also worth mentioning is areas of Mintilogli and Roitika in the municipality of Paralia not far from the Gulf of Patras are also known for their vineyards and quality wines.
A must-visit winery is Achaia-Clauss with its stone buildings and large oak barrels, only 8 kilometres outside the city in green surroundings. The winery was built by the Bavarian Gustav Clauss in 1854 that is today known for its excellent wine. There are daily wine tours in the facility.
