The urban vineyard of the City of Thessaloniki was created in 2013 in the heart of the city, in the area of the Kaftantzoglio Stadium, in the area where the municipal machine shop used to be, as a result of the collaboration of the City of Thessaloniki with the Viticulture Laboratory of the AUTH and the Ktima Gerovassiliou. It is the only urban vineyard nationwide. About 480 plants of wine-making varieties were planted: Xinomavro, Agiorgitiko, Malagouzia and Robola were the four Greek grape varieties that had been chosen. The urban vineyard gives added value to the reputation of Thessaloniki and strengthens the narrative of the wine and culinary culture of the city.
