Mesogeia vineyards and dining

up to 4 hours tour
A trip to Attica’s wine country makes for the perfect excursion. Wine tourism is a great alternative for a getaway in nature that combines oenology, gastronomy and total euphoria. During your visit you will have the chance to tour the premises and learn about the production process from harvesting to fermentation and bottling.
According to Greek Mythology, Dionysus, the God of wine and mirth, entrusted the residents of Attica with the secrets of viticulture and the art of wine drinking.
The district of Mesogeia is the oldest and largest wine-producing region in Greece. With more than 26 winemakers, the area has been distributing wine throughout Greece for ages – literally.
Due to the area’s microclimate, Savvatiano grapes are predominant; these produce golden-coloured wines with a light taste, delicate aroma and low acidity. Savvatiano are mainly used for the production of Retsina. Many red wines are also produced in Mesogeia and distributed not only within Greece (in liquor stores, grocery stores, taverns, etc), but also abroad, primarily in Germany and the United States.
Meanwhile, the wider Attican wine country is continually enriched with new Greek varieties such as Assyrtiko, Malagouzia, Athyri, and Agiorgitiko, as well as with international varieties such as Cabernet, Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.
Your professional English speaking driver will pick you up from the Olygreen Athens Residences. You will board your private vehicle and start driving southeast towards Mesogeia area.
The excursion includes visit in one of the oldest wineries in the area, that goes back 5 generations to the late 1800s. Meet the owner, a professional oenologist and professor of Chemistry at the University of Athens, that will offer you a tour of the winery, explaining the whole process of the wine making and the tradition of his family. Then you will have a wine tasting experience with 5 wines, accompanied by Greek mezes snacks. Optionally you can complete your experience by having a four course home cooked dinner with the family of the wine maker that will help you pair the fine wines produced there with traditional Greek cuisine dishes.
At the end of the tour you will return back to Olygreen Athens Residences.
