Personally I don’t like wine but I thought I would try this experience to see if I could find a wine I liked unfortunately I did not. However, the lady leading the class was clearly very knowledgable and her slideshow presentation helped me to keep track of which wine we were on and what I was meant to be tasting and smelling.

Katarina was more than a sommelier, by the end of the night she became a friend. Amazing wine and even better company. This place gives you the deep history of the wine and takes you through a tasting adventure. If I could give her 100 stars, I would. Definitely book!

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!!
