Join us to the wine tour of the most famous Greek wine! Retsina wine is beyond words the most exquisite Greek wine world-wide.
Its wine story began about 3.000 years before our time, in Athens, Attica. Retsina was born out as a result, to preserve and ship wines in pine-pitch sealed vessels. During those times the product took the final form we know today, that of the use of pine resin in its preparation. Today, Retsina, flavored with natural resin of pines, is one of the most distinguished wines due to this unique method of vinification.
Moving forward through the wine years, Retsina meets nowadays a new era. Wine producers cultivate a more profound and collectible version of this wine. New age Retsina moves from organic wines to more traditional vivificated wines.
Let’s travel to the Greek summer with its mouthwatering taste and refreshing acidity, to feel the sea breeze and the scents of citrus and wild herbs on our lips.
A Greek wine experience that stands perfectly beside Mediterranean traditional flavors or “mezedes”, as Greeks call it, such are fried small fishes, tzatziki, grilled octopus, etc.
Take a seat at this delightful and one of a lifetime tasting experience! Furthermore, prepare to travel 3,000 years to the past by feeling the energy of ancient scenic monuments such as the temple of Sounion and the tube of Marathon.

Terrific Day With Andriana Learning About Wines From Attica
My wife and I had a wonderful day with Andriana! We visit Greece every 2 years and make it a point to do at least 2 wine tours each time we visit to further educate ourselves about Greek wine but also be able to bring our knowledge back to the US to share with others who are interested. We had never visited wineries in the Attica area so we were very excited to learn! Andriana is a master planner and keeps you informed about any possible changes or delays. Our tour was altered close to our date due to COVID, but Andriana quickly found alternative wineries for us that were just fantastic. The wines, the views, the wineries, the people and the food were just terrific! We were picked up promptly at our hotel in Syntagma and away we went! Just a lovely time to learn and make new friends.
