A new wine exploration and visit to the much talked-of Muses Estate in Askri village in Boeotia, just half an hour from Athens! Follow us to the snowy valley of the nine Muses at the foot of Mount Helicon at an altitude of 500-550 meters, and to the family winery while we taste Savatiano, Mouhtaro and blends of Greek and international varieties!

The last episode of our trip to Rheingau follows us at the historical Weingut Robert Weil, running for almost one century and a half. We are tasting top-quality Rieslings with views to the historic mansion and the imposing Gräfenberg and Turmberg vineyards at the base of Scharfenstein Castle's tower, with the Gothic church of St. Valentine on the background!
SCHLOSS VOLLRADS | Rheingau, Germany - October 5th, 2014
posted on 18/11/2014
Following the wine roads of Rheingau in Germany, or else 'the Kingdom of Riesling', the most spectacular white grape in the world -according to many wine enthusiasts! We visit the historic Schloss Vollrads and taste single-vineyard ‘Schlossberg’ wine in various vintages as well as exceptional wines in all styles: Spätlese, Auslese, Beerenauslese and Ice Wines...!
GENTILINI WINERY, Kefalonia - August 16th, 2014
posted on 21/09/2014
Today I will tell you about Gentilini Winery and Vineyards at Minies, Kefalonia. Gentilini is a boutique winery entirely committed to producing high quality wines. Gentilini means product quality, openness, expertise, cooperativeness, evolution! Of course all these properties reflect the personalities of the owners and getting to know restless Petros Markantonatos better, I conclude nothing in life is coincidence after all!

My good fortune sent me -for second summer in a row- to Lesvos, the charming island that offers its famous products to the world; products consubstantial to the conscience of an average Greek to the island itself: sardines, olive oil and -of course- ouzo. I have the pleasure and honor therefore to dedicate today's post to ouzo from Lesvos -the most famous of all Greek ouzos- and the presentation of two major ouzo producers of the island: 'Ouzo of Plomari Isidoros Arvanitis' and 'Ouzo Barbayanni’!
DOMAINE VASSILIOU, Koropi - July 5th, 2014
posted on 01/08/2014
Attiki prefecture is the largest area under vines in Greece, an area that offers unique wine tourism opportunities. We chose one of the oldest and most notable producers of Attiki, Domaine Vassiliou in Koropi and visited them a Saturday morning of July to better know their work with local grape variety Savatiano starring!

Another Easter holiday in one of the most beautiful islands in the world... Lefkada! Lucky us! This is a good opportunity to visit the -perhaps- most active winery of the island called 'Lefkas Earth' and try out wines from the local grape varieties Vardea and Vertzami!

posted on 24/03/2014
Today I am going to talk to you about our visit at Cavino and its truly magnificent vineyard in the gorge of Vouraikos, the production of which is intended for the premium wine range “Domaine Mega Spilaio”. The entire area is a sensational enotourism destination in the heart of the Peloponnese: the gorge of Vouraikos with the funicular railway, the iconic monasteries of Agia Lavra and Mega Spilaio, the historic city of Kalavryta, the ski resort of Helmos, the spectacular Cave of the Lakes with the stalactites and subterranean lakes... Fasten up, off we go!

In a short distance from Athens (120 km), at mountainous Corinthia there are two of the most remarkable wineries of Greece: Papargyriou Estate and Domaine Giouli. Both Estates are located in cold areas and put an emphasis on elegance. Being slightly outside the PDO zones of Nemea and Patras leaves them much space for experimentation, development and innovation! It was a cloudy Sunday in February... with wines to remember!

posted on 02/01/2014
Τhe 28th of October –a National holiday in Greece- fell on Monday this time, making a long weekend for us to enjoy Mount Olympus and the surrounding villages as well as a visit at reputed Greek wine producer Domaine Katsaros! The views of Ossa Mountain, Krania and Pirgetos villages and the enchanting valley of Tempe raised the standards even more while sipping Katsaros wines from Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot!
