This experience is specially designed so that you can enjoy a holistic approach of the grape and its products. And what better way to spend the day than taking an exciting getaway to one of Attica’s best wineries? Many may not know that Athens is surrounded by small historical vineyards that are dotted around the city’s landscape, which you can even see from your airplane window while approaching Athens Airport. Today, Attica is the largest wine region in Greece and many of the wineries can be reached within a 40-minute drive from the center of Athens.
The Mesogaia region where our experience will take place hosts a wide range of indigenous and international varieties thanks to its climate and soil. Savatiano is the heart of the vineyard of Attica, and it is the variety that has been identified with the oldest and most traditional wine worldwide, retsina (resinated wine). Over the years the winemakers have extended their varieties to other grapes of both Greek and international varieties such as Roditis, Malagouzia, Assyrtiko, Mandilaria, Agiogirtiko, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot.
During the Mesogaia Wine tasting experience, you will have the chance to learn about the unique history of winemaking in Greece and taste five regional varieties at a well-known vineyard that we will be visiting. To complete your experience we have included during lunchtime a tasting with three traditional products that derive from the grape. Crunchy grape Must Cookies, an Aromatic Must Pudding, and a shot of Petimezi will take the experience to another level.
Your safety and comfort are our foremost priority! We recommend that you wear comfortable shoes, a hat and sunscreen especially during hot spring and summer days.
This walk I may include a few hills and stairs; we do not recommend this walk for participants with mobility issues.
We take all necessary measures to follow health protocols. Antiseptic gel/wipes will be available throughout the tour as well as extra face masks.
Please let us know if you have any food allergies or special dietary needs
