Lefkas winery & gastronomy

As every Ionian island, Lefkas has its own unique character, a fact that is passed onto its products including wine. Due to the rich ground the island has its own wine production with awarded brands, red and white, from varieties like Vardea and Vertzami. Apart from its wines Lefkada’s traditional products include delicious local sweets like “mantolato”, “pasteli”, “soumada”-a refreshment made of bitter almonds-, salami and sausages and discretely aromatic pure honey made of thyme. There are stores that sell these products throughout the island but the head town of Lefkas holds the biggest variety of stores concentrated in one street.
