Traditional Appellation

Wines with a Traditional Appellation are produced according to the traditional methods of a specific area or country. They are wines whose name is used exclusively and traditionally for the characterization of products coming from only one country or only one area of the country. An example of a Traditional Appellation wine is Retsina. Today, the term ‘Retsina’ is used exclusively for the dry, Greek wines which are produced with the traditional method of adding pine resin into the must. Verdea, a sweet, white wine produced on the island of Zakyntos, comes under the same category, as well.
