    We enjoyed a wonderful wine tasting with our host Sommelier George. It was a beautiful setting with an incredible view of the Acropolis above us. George was extremely knowledgeable and helpful as he took us on a journey of Greek wines. Afterwards we had dinner at the restaurant and all was perfect! Can’t wait to go back!!

    This was a fantastic experience whilst in Athens. We tasted a number of different wines from Greece, including white, rose, red, sparkling and dessert wines. We were there with 2 other couples, however in our own table so it still felt like a private wine tasting. George the sommelier was very knowledgable. We ended up staying for am amazing meal with an incredible view of the acropolis where George recommended a wine to pair with our meal. Definitely recommend!

    We tasted different types of wine, from sparkling, white, red and dessert wines. The hotel has a magnificent view on Acropolis so if you want you can make a reservation for the dinner. We were lucky that one table got canceled so we stayed there after wine tasting which was awesome. The sommelier was so nice and explained everything to us. He took care of us long after the wine tasting was finished. I would definitely recommend it!
