Facing Mount Olympus and at the entrance of the Thermaikos Gulf, the region of Néa Michanióna is located in the southwestern section of Thessaloniki in Central Macedonia.
Famous for its fish market and the Natura salt lake, Nea Michaniona was established in 1923 by waves of Greek refugees (the Micrasiates). Originating from Asia Minor, they arrived in the region bringing their vines with them and a strong viticultural tradition.
Nea Michaniona is an almost flat region with a low average altitude. Vineyards here are mostly cultivated on sand and clay soils. The climate is characterised by mild winters and cool summers while the “boukadoura” summer wind, blowing from the south, keeps the vines well aerated and healthy.
