Metaxa

The story of the METAXA Company began in 1888, when Spyros Metaxas founded the first factory in Piraeus. After that, follows a period when the METAXA drink becomes known and popular worldwide. It soon begins to win numerous awards, medals and prizes. Nowadays, it is exported to over 60 countries, and holds a unique position amongst the 100 most popular drinks globally. It is produced, in the contemporary factory, using the same recipe which Spyros Metaxas used: A) White varieties of wine (mainly Savvatiano and Roditis) are distilled twice, and the product is left to mature in new French oak barrels in cellars. B) At the same time, wine from the varieties Moschato, from Alexandria and Moschato from Samos (from the regions of Lemnos, Patras and Samos) is left to age for at least 2 years, spending part of this period, in barrels. C) Finally, a third blend is created from the extract of aromatic plants and spices that constitutes the "best-kept" secret of the company. D) The three blends are combined together resulting in the final blend, which ages in barrels before it is bottled. The various brands of Metaxa are distinguished from the number of stars on the label, which imply the years of ageing of the distillations used, and the small variations made to the recipe.

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
