Aigialeia holds a special place in the universal vinemap…
It is well known that the most appropriate areas for vine cultivation are between the annual isotherms of 10 to 20◦C equivalent to the latitudes of 30◦ to 50◦ degrees in both northern and southern hemisphere. We find the Aigialeian slopes on the exact same latitude as the Napa Valley vineyards in California 38,1◦-38,3◦.
- the high altitude of the vineyards (700-1000m)
- the ground gradient that is due to the steep geomorphological earth relief of the area
- its proximity to the Corinthian Gulf which is one of the 3 most interesting areas of the world from a geological point of view.
