Visit the region: Attica

Attica was first inhabited during the Neolithic era and it has always had a central role in the historical events of Greece. Its mythical past is also of particular interest, since it was the city favoured most by the twelve Olympian gods. During ancient times, Athens, and Attiki in general was a great economic, political, intellectual and cultural force, culminating during the "Golden Age of Pericles".The Acropolis of Athens was built during that time, along with the architectural monuments of the Sacred Rock of the Acropolis and many other great buildings.The Peloponnesian War, the expansion of Alexander the Great’s empire, the Roman occupation, the spreading of Christianity, the Byzantines' contempt, the arrival of the Francs, Catalans and Venetians, and finally the period of the Ottoman occupation, all marked the history of Attiki, right up to the year 1834, when Athens was nominated capital, of the finally independent Greek state.

The landscape of Attiki is characterized by the Athenian blue sky, the sun and the glorious shades that the sunset brings out on its stone mass.Also worth mentioning, are the mountains that surround the basinof Attiki with their characteristic vegetation, the national parks, the forest of Kessariani, the wetlands of Mesogeia and the beautiful sandy beaches. One can also spot native and migratory birds, visit countless archaeological sites and walk along the narrow streets of the picturesque area of Plaka, admiring the balconies of its magnificent neoclassical buildings.

In Greek Mythology, legend goes that Dionysus, god of wine and merrymaking, entrusted the inhabitants of Attica with the cultivation of the grapevine and the art of winemaking. The terroir of Mesogia, Attica, renowned for its wines, is Greece’s oldest. It is where the celebrated grape variety “Savvatiano” is grown and where Retsina, the queen of Attica wines, reigns supreme. Retsina is under a Traditional Appellation certification as its unique, traditional traits guarantee a product of special taste and true Greek character. Apart from Mesogia, the region of Attica also includes the area of Piraeus which is Greece’s and the eastern Mediterranean’s largest port celebrated for its strategic and trading significance since ancient times. Today, it is Greece’s and the Greek economy’s largest hub of commercial activities and has the highest passenger traffic among European ports. The Prefecture of Attica is often a preferred destination for visitors as it combines countless, breathtaking vistas with a wide range of entertainment and culinary choices

Divine Seeds

Ιt is their passion for and admiration of mother nature that ignited their desire to found “Divine Seeds”. Standing in the middle of a field full of artichokes on the island of Crete, devouring the greek sun, it all came together.

Their close attachment to prickly pears and artichokes in any form, from eating the fruit to drinking the spirits produced from these blessed seeds, led them to go deeper and explore the identities of these two plants.
