A few words about Kissamos Wine…
The traditionally produced wine in the region of Kissamos is unique. it is said that the emperors from Byzantine and ancient Roman times sent specially designed ships to transport wine and oil to their palaces. Very important references to Kissamos and its wines are found in Dioscurides’ books written around 100 AD.
