  • Description

    WELL KNOWN PERSONALITIES ARE INVITED TO A VILLAGE NEAR ATHENS EACH AUTUMN FOR AN OLD GREEK CUSTOM - THE WINE-PRESSING FIESTA.

    MEMBERS OF THE DIPLOMATIC CORPS, AND LEADING OFFICIALS AND THEIR FAMILIES, TRAVELLED TO LIOPESSI VILLAGE IN ATTICA ON FRIDAY TO TAKE OFF THEIR SHOES, WASH THEIR FEET AND JOIN IN THE JUBILANT PRESSING OF THE GRAPES.

    AFTER THE USUAL BLESSING OF THE GRAPES BY TWO ORTHODOX PRIESTS, THE FAMILIES ENTERED LIOPESSI'S PRIMITIVE OLD WINE-PRESSING ROOM AND DANCED ON THE GRAPES TO THE SOUND OF LOCAL MUSIC.

    GOOD LIOPESSI WINE AND DELICIOUS LOCAL FOOD MAKE THE FIRST WEEK OF OCTOBER A TIME WORTH REMEMBERING. AND NO ONE REGRETS THAT, DESPITE THAT, DESPITE THE MODERNIZATION OF INDUSTRY, THIS VILLAGE'S WINE PRODUCTION SYSTEM REMAINS A TRADITIONAL ONE.
