There is one winemaking area in Greece, where tremendous financial investment has been undertaken in recent times: the northern part of the Peloponnese. During the last decade, new wineries have mushroomed and vineyard prices have risen steeply. There have even been some heated rows between some of the top winemakers in the pursuit of land of the very best terroir.
