Artisanal hand-crafted wines, lovely terraces, amazing Greek Food and even a local parian greek beer… You may think that the island with the best wineries in Greece is Santorini but Paros is also home to some lovely wineries with excellent local produce. This is your Guide to Paros Wineries 🍷.

It’s not widely known that there is some decent wine production on the island of Paros with some passionate winemakers who have more than 100 years of history, but I can definitely tell you, it’s there. Obviously, the winery scene of Paros is not as diverse and big as Santorini wineries landscape, but Paros wines are really unique and worth tasting. It’s also worth noting, that there is a unique local variety of wine that is called “Paros” which is only produced on the island.

If you are feeling lost while searching for Katikia winery then you are just getting there…

Katikia winery is literally the farm of the lovely Mr Pantelis Zoumis who is producing his own house wine and he will guide you through the production and history of wine on the island. Pantelis produces house wine, jam, tsipouro and lots of fresh fruits. If you are lucky, he may even start singing and playing traditional island music to you. He is a real gem! Make sure you call him before visiting (of course there is no website and Instagram…Pantelis is the real thing!).

6. Pantelis Anousakis Winery & Farm
