P.D.O. Limnos (O.P.A.P.) / Λήμνος
Description to P.D.O. Limnos (O.P.A.P.) / Λήμνος
The Greek volcanic island (also Lemnos, Limnio) with 480 km² lies in the northern Aegean Sea between the Athos peninsula in the northwest and the Asia Minor mainland in the east. According to Greek mythology, the limping Hephaistos (Roman Vulcanus), the Greek god of fire and the forge, lived here. In his work "Iliad", the poet Homer (8th century B.C.) names the island as the source of wine for the Greek army at the siege of Troy and tells how Hephaistos forged new weapons for the hero Achilles. Towards the end of the 19th century, phylloxera destroyed the vineyards with autochthonous vines; reconstruction took place mainly with Moschato Aspro (Muscat Blanc) and Muscat d'Alexandrie.
