    We tasted different types of wine, from sparkling, white, red and dessert wines. The hotel has a magnificent view on Acropolis so if you want you can make a reservation for the dinner. We were lucky that one table got canceled so we stayed there after wine tasting which was awesome. The sommelier was so nice and explained everything to us. He took care of us long after the wine tasting was finished. I would definitely recommend it!

    It was just the two of us, which we didn't expect but made it extra special for us as we were on our honeymoon. The sommelier certainly knew his stuff, and as seasoned wine drinkers from Canada, this was the type of experience we were expecting. We brought some ice wine from Canada with us to give as a gift; it resulted in an extra tasting! Would highly recommend trying this, as the wine was superb.

    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.
