In the footsteps of Dionysus through Attica

Attica, the area surrounding Athens, is one of the oldest wine-producing regions in the world. For over 3,000 years, excellent wines such as Savatiano have been cultivated here. More than 30 wineries produce these coveted Attica wines.

WHAT TO EXPECT
We collect you from your accommodation in Athens at 9 am in a luxuriously equipped mini-van. After a half-hour drive, we arrive at one of Attica’s most distinguished wineries. Here a sommelier awaits us and guides us through the vineyards, the wine press, and of course into the wine cellar. In this pleasantly cool atmosphere, we taste at least five excellent Greek wines, accompanied by a cheese platter and bread. Of course, you will receive a detailed explanation of each wine from our wine expert.

Afterwards, the journey continues to the southernmost point of the Greek mainland. The imposing temple of the ancient sea god Poseidon has stood at Cape Sounion for 2,500 years. Made entirely of marble and built to last for eternity, it overlooks the beautiful Aegean Sea atop its 60-metre-high cliff. The temple is a masterpiece of Greek precision architecture and is certainly worth a visit.

After having experienced the fascinating temple and the unique view over the Aegean Sea, we continue our journey along the picturesque west coast of Attica. After about an hour’s drive, we arrive at an exceptional restaurant located right by the sea. Here we enjoy a 4-course gourmet meal with a further selection of excellent Attica wines.

After a truly enjoyable and eventful day, we arrive back at your accommodation in Athens at around 5:30 pm.
