3-10 October, 2021
This is a new trip, taking in the wines, food, history and culture of one of the earliest and most advanced civilisations on Earth. From Athens, the birthplace of democracy, over the Gulf of Corinth and through the Peloponnese, this trip takes in a huge spectrum of Greek life.
Get used to new varietals like Roditis, Moscofilero, Malagousia, Mavrodaphne, Assyrtiko and Agiorgitiko. These local wines are astonishing, interesting and novel. Sometimes blended with international varietals like Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon they are often better when left to express their native terroir. But that’s for you to decide on your own Greek Odyssey.
As well as some of the some of the country’s best wine regions there are great historical sites to savour as well. We visit Mycenae and Epidaurus, famed throughout the world since ancient times.
