Winemaking in Greece is a thousands-years old tradition – an intrinsic part of Greek culture. But with so many good wines, it really helps to have an expert select the good stuff and pair it with the food flavors that work best.

Highlights

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

What you can expect

For this wine tasting experience, you’re invited to a wonderful, intimate Athens 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, an experienced sommelier, will explain the history of Greek winemaking and the parallel evolution, from a wide range of influences, of Greek gastronomy.

While tasting premium Greek wines, you’ll be served food pairings as well –delicious mezes from all over Greece- selected to match each wine and bring out the best of their flavors and aromas. During the tasting, you’ll discover more about the great winemaking regions & wineries of Greece, what makes each of them unique and about the PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) labels that protect the great traditions of Greek wines and Greek regional cuisine.

Wine, food, a warm welcome and a lively discussion of the merits of each region – you couldn’t get more Greek!

"We went on the LGBT Nightlife Tour and it was incredible! It is always a struggle to find the real LGBT hot spots in a new place and this tour helped us do exactly that. Marlene was incredible."

"My children are avid Percy Jackson fans, obsessed with Greek gods and myths, so seeing where the stories had come from was a real highlight for them. And then there were the turtles in the cemetery.... seriously!"
