Athens Wine Tasting

Athens, the classical beauty, is where history meets the modern day in a mishmash of the ancient and the chaotically new. We get a taste of Greece’s winemaking heritage on this long weekend wine tasting course, in the verdant growing regions of Attica Mesogeia and Stamata. Greece is home to some of Europe's top wines. Don't just take our word for it though, because you'll enjoy tasting sessions accompanied by platters of graviera cheese straight from the Aegean Islands, salty kefalotyri cheese, and fine Grecian salami mezzes.

Today, we drive toward the eastern part of Attica to reach the famous Mesogeia region – the oldest and largest wine-producing region in Greece. The winery we visit is the first in Greece especially designed and built according to innovative bioclimatic standards. Located among vines, it sits atop the ruins of an old monastery, with views out across the plains of the Attican vineyards. In that gorgeous setting, let our trained sommelier guide you through some of the nation’s most acclaimed wines.

In close proximity to the vineyard lies the Temple of Artemis, the haunt of Dionysus, the patron saint of wine. It’s the perfect place to finish the trip, after which we transfer to Athens International airport for the flight back home.
