Rhodes: Wine Tasting Holiday

(Ro-dos in Greek)

Rhodes enjoys a climate quite favorable for wine grapes with whites coming from the Athiri grapes and reds from Mandilariá (known locally as Amorgianó). Sweet wines made from Moschato Aspro and Trani Muscat grapes are also available. Wine tasting holidays in Rhodes are enjoyable although there is nowhere near the choice of other European wine-producing regions such as Italy and France. One village where wine tasting holidays in Rhodes are particularly popular is Embonas where most of the local residents work in either oil or wine production.

In the mornings, the Emery wine plant welcomes numerous visitors who fancy a tipple to start their day. A number of tour companies also offer wine tasting trips as part of a more general tour of the island of Rhodes.
