An enjoyable and excellent day out! Andriana and her team put together a great programme which took a full day. Pick up from our accommodation, followed by a drive through Patras to Achaia Clauss winery. A passionately presented tour of the Museum (a history of Greek wine making in itself) and the Imperial Cellar, before a highly knowledgeable and friendly wine tasting. A progressive range of white, rose, red and sweet wines, all enjoyable, ‘served’ with detailed information and background.
On to the completely different Mega Spileo (and related labels) winery at Aigio. We were walked through a contrasting modern and high volume wine and ouzo production facility, before being invited into the tasting room to sample many of the premium Mega Spileo wines. Again, a deeply informative and comprehensive presentation of their extensive range of wines, enjoyed in an interactive and fun extended discussion with the wine maker himself!
All followed by a rather late lunch by the sea on the Gulf of Corinth. We would recommend Wine Connoisseurs and this tour to anyone with an interest in – or who simply enjoys – good wines.
