In beautiful Evia major players in the wine landscape is the plain of Lilantio and Karistos. In the fertile plain of Lilantio the vineyards unfold at an altitude of up to 350 meters.

The climate here is very hot and dry, but the cool air from the gulf of Petals gives breaths of cool to the vines during the summer. Apparently a region devoted to white grapes, dominated by Savatiano which covers about 4/5 of the total area and other vines with Roditi, Assyrtiko, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, but also some new notable attempts of cultivation of the red Syrah.

In the other side of the island, at the south end in Karystos, mainly are planted Greek Aegean varieties, which are customed to the hot air and the generally dry climate. These are the white Athiri from Rhodes, and Aidani Assyrtiko from Santorini and red the Cretan Liatiko.
