Greece has been making wine for thousands of years – it’s an intrinsic part of the culture. But with so many good wines, it really helps to have an expert to try the good stuff and match it with the food flavors that work best.

We offer all our tours as private and are happy to customize them for you!

Highlights

  • A chance to try a selection of the better Greek reds and whites
  • Food-pairing that shows you what goes best with each variety and lets you try local nibbles at the same time
  • A relaxed wine-tasting environment that features the wine, not the venue
  • Full background information on the wines, the areas and the vintages, as well as on the food

What you can expect

For this wine-tasting, you’re invited to a wonderful, small wine bar, where you will sample two whites and two reds, all of which are 100% 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’ll be served food along with the wines – what you’ll eat as you drink has been chosen based on the wine it goes with and because it’s tasty. The food, like the wine, is representing Greek flavors, and we’ve picked it with this in mind. During the tasting, you’ll 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) and about the PDOs 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 – you couldn’t get more Greek!

Testimonials

"Amazing cultural insight of the city! Nikos brought us to the places we wouldn't even think to explore in Athens. He's an artist himself, so it was very interesting to listen to his point of view on the artistic level of the murals as well as the stories behind them."

"The Street Art Tour with Nikos was fantastic! He knows his stuff. I took tons of photos home, presented the same tour to my secondary school students and they loved it! Thanks so much."

"It was the highlight of our trip! Such a unique and fun way to get to know Athens. Our guide, Nikos, was very knowledgeable about the art and the history and context of street art in Greece. If you're a fan of art or just want an interesting way to explore the city, I highly recommend this tour."
