Wine Routes On The Beautiful Hills Of Kefalonia

View from our Balcony

Robola is a local grape variety used to produce most of the island’s quality white wines. Robola had been mentioned in historical texts as early as the 12th century and was most likely brought to the island by the Venetians. The largest plantations are
located in areas between 500 and 800 meters above sea level, in the area of the Omala Valley near the Monastery of St. Gerasimus. There is a winery, Robola Wine Cooperative, where you can taste all the wines they produce, any day of the week.
Robola is of protected geographical origin. Other autochthonous species are Vostilids and Mavrodaphni. You can visit the wineries on your own or as part of an organized tour. We recommend Sarris Winery as well as Gentilini Winery. The Kefalonia Wine Tour brings innovation to alternative tourism, offering group and private tours. As you’re tasting Robola and other wines of protected geographical origin, winegrowers, and sommeliers will introduce you to different grape varieties and explain how wine is produced.
