Local people have great respect for traditions of wine drinking. This beverage is consumed here literally every day. It is worth noting that wine is usually served and drunk diluted. Wine is diluted with ordinary water in proportions from 1:1 to 1:3. This diluted wine is sometimes served even to children - it is not considered an alcoholic beverage in Kefalonia. Actually, the drink tastes as a usual refreshing cocktail.
A place called Pylaros is famous for producing special sorts of cheese that are considered the most delicious ones in whole Greece. Probably, Feta, Mesitra and Kefalotiri are the best known sorts of cheese that are produced here. In many foreign countries they are considered a real delicacy. The main secret of the local cheese is in following centuries-old traditions of cheese making.
