Wine, Culture & Nature lovers look out
If you're looking for wine tours off the beaten path, there are plenty of hidden gems and lesser-known wineries in Northern Greece that offer unique and authentic experiences and Metsovo is definitely one of them!!
Katogi Averoff Winery
You will be surprised that this area has one of the most historic wineries, founded by Evangelos Averoff when he first started making wines in his “katogi=basement”. When you visit the winery there is a small exhibition of his personal items and also the first labels he painted himself, which is not very different from the current one. The edifice is built in the traditional architecture of the area and the visiting areas are original and extraordinary . The tasting “bar” amid the quite dramatic “bottle installation” is indeed impressive. During the wine tasting take your time and really savor the wines made from the local and international varieties from the highest altitude vineyards of Greece. At the end of the tour you have a shop where you can buy not only wines and tsipouro (WOW !!!) but also Averoff’s books, local crafts and memorabilia.
