My husband and I had the most amazing wine tasting experience with Katerina. She knew so much about the featured wines and wine in general. I knew very little about wine tasting and she was very helpful and encouraging. Most importantly, we had a lot of fun and great conversation. This was the highlight of our trip to Athens! 100/100!

Personally I don’t like wine but I thought I would try this experience to see if I could find a wine I liked unfortunately I did not. However, the lady leading the class was clearly very knowledgable and her slideshow presentation helped me to keep track of which wine we were on and what I was meant to be tasting and smelling.

Katarina was more than a sommelier, by the end of the night she became a friend. Amazing wine and even better company. This place gives you the deep history of the wine and takes you through a tasting adventure. If I could give her 100 stars, I would. Definitely book!
