Moreover, north Greece has been a leading area in viticultural management innovation in Greece. In addition to technical visits, the rich cultural and historical heritage of Thessaloniki will be integrated in the Meeting's program. Finally, a two-day Post-Congress Tour will provide an option to extend the meeting program by a combination of visits to sites of both viti-vinicultural and touristic interest.
