10:00am Start of our Wine and Tasting Odyssey !
10:45am Our first stop around 10.45am is the charming Domaine Florian. This family run, boutique winery is located in the well-known wine region of Epanomi and is the result of a long family tradition in viticulture and winemaking. In order to financially sustain the ethos of the family business and to ensure year-round work for the employees, the farm also produces exquisite olive oils, honey and Greek aromatic plants, such as oregano, lavender and thyme. Florian’s philosophy has always honoured the importance of sustainable environment management and quality-oriented cultivation of vineyards. He emphasises traditional vinification processes, combined with modern cellar equipment. A tour of the farm and vines will conclude by wine tasting on the balcony overlooking the bay. Depending on the season you may also want to take part in the seasonal harvesting.
12:00pm Around noon we will arrive at Ktima Gerovassiliou, one of the most established and acclaimed wineries of North Greece. The owner Mr. Gerovassiliou, is the responsible person for the revival of Malagouzia, an old and forgotten Greek variety which he has cultivated with love since the 80’s.
His love for art is prominent, as dispersed in the vineyards you will see his significant collection from mainly Greek but also international sculptors. He is also an avid collector of viticulture, winemaking, bottling and cooperage tools from around the world and especially corkscrews; all these items are displayed in the Wine Museum of the estate that we will visit during our tour. The tasting takes place in the unique area overlooking the vines and Mount Olympus, where you will taste wines exclusively produced from Greek grape varieties. Combined with aromatically compatible Greek raw materials
03:00pm Our journey will come to an end with our return to Thessaloniki.
