Geographic Retrospection


Kassandra: The shores of Khalkidhiki are surrounded by 500 km of magnificent beaches, while its hills and mountains are covered by dense forests. Although just one hour away from Thessaloniki, Khalkidhiki 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 coves flanked by cliffs. The air carries the scent of the fir forests and the saltiness of the sea

The climate in Khalkidhiki is mild. It is typically Mediterranean, with long, hot summers and mild winters. The Aegean Sea, which embraces the shores of Khalkidhiki’s three legs (Kassandra, Sithonia, and Athos) sends a cool breeze in the hills of the hinterland.
The light, potassium-rich sandy loam soil of Khalkidhiki is characterized by a calcium-rich subsoil, with good structure and water permeability. These factors provide an excellent basis for the development of grapes, enhancing the bouquet of the locally produced wines and helping to balance their delicious character.Sights
