Taste the Experience! Discover the diversity and the secrets of the indigenous Greek wines by joining us in one of our Thessaloniki Wine Tours!
If you’re wondering where the name The Greek Wine Experience came from, you’re probably very close.
It perfectly describes what we stand for and who we are and the approach we take when it comes to Greek wines. We are a group of people that share a deep passion for wine, and anything related to it, and enjoy it too!
That’s why we are The Greek Wine Experience.
We are relatively new in the vast community of wine lovers, but are happy to slowly make our name for ourselves as we contribute to it by offering unique experiences on a daily basis, besides the fact that we are sharing our passion through our blog.
Even though we wouldn’t necessarily call ourselves experts (yet), we have a reasonable amount of wine tasting experience, having tasted different types of wines from allover Greece and various geographies and regions from other countries, we would be delighted if you’d be willing to join us on our journey as we discover more and more about Greek wine and share our learnings with you on one of our locations.
Most importantly, our mission is to offer you The Greek Wine Experience in a most fun and informative way as possible that may spark an interest in wine for you, or in case you’re already interested, a deepened curiosity to perhaps broaden that interest.
It’s great to have you here and we would love to host you in one of our private wine and history tours or for a wine tasting weekend or vineyard tour and tasting for two!
reece is a beautiful country, with a long history and a culture of good wines paired with good foods – in fact, the Greeks will rarely drink without eating.
Greece is a wine heaven that delights the palate, from it’s dry whites to it’s sweet dessert wines. Resin wines and organic wines abound, adding more elements to surprise the connoisseur and passerby alike. There are wine roads indicating the importancy of wine tours in Greece that criss-cross across Northern Greece near by Thessaloniki, but also through central Macedonia and the entire Northern part of Greece. Practically every city in the region has at least two or three wineries, and all deserve honorable mention. Discover the indigenous Greek wines alongside with great home-made Greek cheeses and take your stay to another level. Follow us in a unique Thessaloniki wine tasting.
Enjoy! Greek Wines, Real Taste, Great Living.
XINOMAVRO! If you’re a wine connoisseur, North Greece’s wines will win you over.
Winemaking has been going on in Greece for millennia, thanks to the rich soil, generous sun and ideal conditions. But the similarities for the wines stop there, as the soil changes from area to area, the elevations produce different flavors and the techniques take on various facets.
Locals carefully grow and mature this variety in a way that has made them famous for the quality wines produced. In specific at Naoussa, Amyntaion & Goumenissa. If you are looking for things to do in Thessaloniki or North Greece, some of these producers are open for wine tours, so you’ll be able to visit and learn more about Greek wineries. Besides xinomavro, there are plenty of other indigenous Greek grape varieties such as the popular Malagouzia, the (really) ancient Limnio and so many more out of the 300 (or even more) Greek grape varieties.
On the other hand, there are some places that are so unique and so vibrant, you’d swear they have a life and soul of their own; a beating heart hidden in the landscape. Thessaloniki is one of these rare places! So beautiful with a personality of it’s own, it infuses everything from its architecture to its art, its stunning nature to it’s multicutlural past.
We, at The Greek Wine Experience offer Thessaloniki Wine Tours and unique personal experiences!
Our mission here is simple: provide an unforgettable experience so that our guests will want to return season after season!
We were blown away by our fantastic experience at Avithos Preview Restaurant. We tasted 6 amazing Greek wines with perfect cheese partnerships. Our host was passionate, interesting and knowledgeable! The portions were far to generous for the price we paid. Thank you for a fun and educational evening.
We and our guests had an amazing and unforgettable experience with Dimitri at our villa. He delivered what he promised and even more! His energy and passion about wines was so great that we didn't realize how the time went by. If you visit Cephalonia, don't miss it.
