Our odyssey through the Macedonian wine region
Let me take you on a journey to the different wine regions of Northern Greece, through the wineries that I have visited the past few months.
My journey started in January in Ktima Kir-Yianni in Yiannakochori. Located at the foothills of Mount Vermion, it was a rare sight as you could see the bare vineyards with a backdrop of the ski slopes of 3-5 Pigadia Ski Resort. The winery team led by Elpida Palamida are doing an excellent job in welcoming guests and taking them through the wine tasting with the wines of the estate. In the restaurant, overlooking the mountain and the vineyards, chef Kiriaki Fotopoulou, designed the pairing and à la carte menu with balance and elegance. With spring around the corner a daily trip here is ideal to combine Wine Touring & History . Another activity involves biking by the vineyards, as you can rent bikes and cycle around the estate . Then if you are still feeling adventurous, pick up your picnic basket and head under the “2 Elies” or by the pond to enjoy your lunch.
