Full description
For this wine tasting you are invited to a wonderful, small wine bar, where you will sample two whites and two reds. All of the wines are local – not just grown locally, but featuring local grape varieties as well. Of course there’s more to wine than just the taste. Your host will explain the history of Greek wine making and the parallel evolution, from a wide range of influences, of Greek gastronomy.
 
You will be served food along with the wines. The small dishes have been chosen to compliment the wine it is served with. The food will show you authentic Greek flavors, and has been picked with this in mind. During the tasting, you will discover more about the regions that produce each of the wines and the mezes, what makes each of these areas unique both in terms of oenology and gastronomy.

You'll also learn about the PDOs (Protected Designations of Origin) that have been awarded to both wines and food in Greece. Wine, food, a warm welcome and a lively discussion of the merits of each region. This is a truly authentic Greek experience.

  • 4 different famous Greek wines (2 reds, 2 whites)
