A half-day wine tour from Athens in an unexplored region of eastern Attica.


Ancient Greeks believed that wine was a gift from the gods. They worshiped Dionysus, a creature with the mind of man and the instincts of a beast, as god of wine. The history of wine is believed to have been introduced in Greece around 4000 BC, during Minoan and Mycenaean civilizations, and ancient Greeks used to drink wine to praise the gods and expand their mind. During this day trip we learn about the Greek wine culture from ancient times until today at the Museum of Wine, and taste exquisite wines from the district of eastern Attica, which is considered the oldest and largest wine producing region in Greece.


We also visit the Amphiareion sanctuary in Oropos, devoted to the worship of Amphiaraos, one of the most prominent Greek heroes. He was thought to be the “Second Asclepius” and he had many sanctuaries around Greece of which the most well known is the Amphiareion of Oropos, near Athens.

Key highlights of this journey:

– Learn about the wine making in antiquity by visiting a wine museum
– Taste ambassador wines by visiting a distinctive vineyard
– Explore the archaeological site of Amphiareion
