Best wine tasting experience I have ever had

This wine tasting event was one of the finest. The experience combined good pairings of cheese and wine, plus historical, informative slides and discussions. I was very impressed on all aspects. The space was delightful, the presenters - fantastic.
Loved it!

This was a phenomenal wine tasting that I recommend to anyone coming to Athens. Five wines paired with cheese, olives, bread... tasty! Our sommelier was super knowledgeable and taught us all something new about wines! I will 1000% do this again!
What a Great Evening!
Beth_R, Mar 2024
I learned SO much about wine over the course of the evening! Our host was wonderful and made the experience feel very comfortable, especially for people like me who didn't really know much about wine, other than liking it. The accompanying snacks were also perfect for the wines we tried. I highly recommend you book this experience!

Phenomenal wine tasting
Laurie_O, Jan 2024
This wine tasting was phenomenal. The atmosphere was outstanding. We were lucky enough to have the owner do our tasting. He was incredibly knowledgeable and very friendly. The tasting does not just focus on the taste of the wine, but also showcases the history and regions of Greek wine. If you are looking for something to do in Athens this should be it! We can’t wait to come back and do this again’

Top notch Greek wine tour
MariaLora_T, Jan 2024
We’re quite familiar with Cabernet Sauvignon from Bordeaux, Shiraz from Australia, Chardonnay from Napa. But Greek wines? 🤔 So, we decided to embark on a wine adventure in Athens with Theo, a local sommelier. 🇬🇷 His atelier was the perfect setting for this educational and delicious experience. He started us off with four cheeses, each carefully chosen to complement the wines we were about to taste. First up: Savvatiano, a dry white from Attica. I nailed the apple and lemon notes, but Theo pointed out subtle hints of white flowers and herbs that my nose completely missed. This one paired beautifully with the mozzarella. Next: Assyrtiko from Santorini, where grapes soak up the volcanic goodness of the Cyclades. I got the floral and fruity notes on this one, and it danced with the feta like nobody's business. Theo mentioned minerals and smoke, though... how does that even work? My favorite: Malagouzia from Thessaloniki in northern Greece. Pears and mangoes? Check! Theo says there should be white rose, sage, and cardamom too, but my nose must be having an off day. Regardless, this wine was amazing with the creamy cheese. Onto the reds: We had an Agiorgitiko from Nemea in the Peloponnese, which was all about those tannins. Big, bold, and beautiful. And then there was Xinomavro from Macedonia, a lighter-than-red, darker-than-rosé kind of wine that packs a punch of tomato and leather. Leather?! Who knew wine could taste like that? This experience was a humbling reminder that there's so much more to learn about wine. I'm not aiming to become a sommelier, but I want to appreciate the stories these wines tell, the cultures they represent, and the joy they bring to people's lives. If you're ever in Athens, be sure to track down Theo and let him take you on your own wine adventure!
Passionate wine lover shares his love of wine
David_H, Jan 2024
Been to many wine tastings over the years- this arguably one if the best; it’s a “proper” tasting with a lot of thought gone into the content; probably learnt more about tasting and tannins than on any other. If you want to learn about Greek wines from someone who has a real passion then this tour is for you
Lovely Wine Tasting in a Great Shop - Highly Recommend
Kristyna_B, Jan 2024
We had a lovely date night at the tasting on our last night in Athens. Lidia was knowledgable, welcoming, relaxed and made the whole experience fun and truly educational without being intimidating. The wines and cheeses were well paired. My only suggestion was to also provide information on what the cheeses were and offer them for sale with the wines as well.
Private class

I was the only one for the class. I arrived early so Lydia our instructor started with me early. She is very young and lovely. She is also very knowledgeable and encouraging. We had a good time together.

This was a great experience. It’s a little hole in the wall in an unusual part of town and then you open the door and it’s just beautiful. Lydia did the presentation This was a great experience. It’s a little hole in the wall in a unusual part of town and then you open the door and it’s just beautiful. Lydia did the presentation and she was amazing. Very knowledgeable and very patient with all questions. The only thing I didn’t like is that it was supposed to be 10 people or less and it ended up being 12 or 13 which made it a little more than we would’ve liked but otherwise it was excellent.
