Food & Wine Experiences
Two Top Wine Regions with Delicious Regional Cuisine
Northern Greece & Santorini boast some of the most distinct and heralded wines in Greece and Southeastern Europe, as well as sumptuous regional cuisines.
As you travel the food and wine roads of Northern Greece, dine on skillfully prepared specialties featuring local ingredients such as mushrooms, saffron, PDO cheese, peppers, and wild game. Taste the full-bodied Xinomavro red wines of Naoussa that with age “can acquire a bouquet as haunting as all but the finest Barolo”* and the sparkling and rose Xinomavro wines of Amyndeo. Enjoy a meal of small plates in an ouzerie and gourmet meals in some of the most renowned tavernas in Greece.
On the volcanic island of Santorini, tour wineries producing crisp, mineral white wines, as well as sweet wines. Savor local dishes that feature unique local food products such as white eggplant, capers, and Santorini cherry tomatoes. Enjoy the freshest seafood as waves lap at your feet. Take in the breathtaking view as you walk the caldera rim.
Our expert-led private food and wine tours are complemented by accommodations in some of our favorite boutique hotels and traditional inns, luxury transportation, and interesting excursions and cultural activities that will introduce you to an authentic Greece.
