1054 – New Vineyard Chilandariou

With the restoration of the Chilandariou monastery after the fire of 2004 the St Sava’s Field vineyard, abandoned 30 years ago, has been planted with 47,000 Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon vines, to produce wine for the monastery, as well as for export to raise funds for the restoration.
