This was a truly magical experience. The location - a rooftop space overlooking the Parthenon, Agora, and Hephaisteion - was a bonus as the sun set. The wines were almost all excellent, and the portions were abundant - we got very tipsy very quickly. This was in fact the only shortcoming to note: the snacks were too few for the quantity of wine offered. The sommelier, George, is a gem: friendly, knowledgeable, and eloquent. He explained every wine and grape variety in great detail and made excellent comparisons with more famous wines to get us oriented. He clearly loves the wines that are being produced in Greece today.

This is a must do in Athens. My daughter and I met another mother and daughter and had a wonderful evening with an amazing view of the Parthenon and surrounding neighborhood. Our wine sommelier was very knowledgeable about all the regions and wines of Greece. The wines are very under appreciated as I found them comparable if not better than the wines in France and Napa California. After the sunset it’s a wonderful neighborhood to stroll around in and stop in a few bars playing music and talk to the very gracious and friendly people of Athens.

Tasting wine with the view of the Acropolis was a real highlight of our trip. The Sommelier was very knowledgeable about all the wines we tasted. We were very well looked after and ended up staying the whole evening and having diner. Check out the menu, the food is good

Very very lovely man who severed me. I was alone but I enjoyed the wines and the food was divine. Thanks!

Cozy on the roof with a view of the lights of the city and acropolis....
