Sommelier tour

Discover the truth hidden in wine on our sommelier tour and learn about the ancient traditions of winemaking and drinking, a major part of ancient Greece culture. Dionysus, the god of wine, pleasure and festivity, was one of the most popular deities, with regular fun-filled celebrations held in his honor.

Greece is renowned for its wine and winemaking culture, yet surprisingly little of its production permeates outside its borders. Our sommelier tour of northern Greece seeks to uncover the secrets of these delectable drinks, full of flavour and sunlight. We will explore the wineries and sample their produce, helping you discern which wines are best for your palate. So, join us and discover the wonderful world of greek wine.

Winemaking in northern Greece

The regions of Epirus, Macedonia, and thrace are particularly proud of their long-standing winemaking traditions. The valleys, surrounded by mountains, have a favourable climate for cultivating unique varieties of grapes. As a result, local viticulturists produce a plethora of delicious beverages, with extraordinary scents and flavours.

Dining with wine

At restaurants and cafes, wine is usually a part of a meal. People from all over the world come to this place to savor the incredible drinks. The vineyards located in the northern part of the country are situated on mountains and are able to withstand harsh climate. These wines are very refreshing and their scent is like that of fresh fruit. To pair with the younger wines, locals serve cheeses that can only be produced in this region.
