Overview

Wine tasting and Must Cookie Baking, a unique combination! 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).

During this experience, you will have the chance to learn about the unique history of winemaking in Greece and taste five to six regional varieties at a well-known vineyard that we will be visiting.   To complete your experience we have included a Must Cookie baking experience! A perfect family-friendly experience too!
