    The location was exceptional… such great views. The restaurant ambience was very good … the waiters were skilled…. Even the water was served with professionalism. The sommelier was affable and knowledgeable and served a good range of Greek wines focussing on local varietals. Good explanation of each wines characteristics. I thought the event was good value .. as to taste the numbers of wines would have otherwise been an expensive venture!

    We booked this experience for our first night in Athens after a long day of travel. The restaurant is lovely and has a great view of the Acropolis. George was so helpful during the tasting and was a pleasure to talk to, as well. We would absolutely recommend this experience to anyone visiting Athens.

    A lovely way to discover some Greek wines. Both a bubble, white, rose, red and a dessert wine. And we even got to taste 2 or 3 of the white and red ones because we had to wait for the sommelier because of the traffic. The sommelier was very enthusiastic and proud of his Greek wines. I was very surprised by its quality!
