Olina our sommelier was amazing at explaining how to recognise top quality wine, and how to recognise different tastes, bodies and finish. She was knowledgeable about all the different types of Greek wine, their regions and how the wine is grown. Great value for money, perfect for novices or those who have never recognised the diversity of Greek wines. Highly recommend!!

Our young female sommelier spoke with great passion about the Greek wines and let us taste a very interesting selection of red and white wines. Her explanation was very knowledgeable.
