I am co-founder of Athens Wine Tasting, a certified wine expert with studies in WSET and STAREGISTER. I lived most of my life in Athens and worked as a mixologist and sommelier. Wine is my passion and I want to share this passion with the visitors of Athens and Greece.
Having lived here for almost 30 years, I am a lover of the historic city center and still enjoy every wander in its small streets, alleys and historic sites. My interests are windsurfing, camping, cooking and traveling.
I love to nurture my guests about Greece’s tastiest wines many of which they have never heard of.

Absolutely brilliant wine tasting. The host was very knowledgeable and I learnt a lot about the history of Greek wine, the main wine regions and lots of detail about each wine we tasted, along with food pairing recommendations, and some lovely Greek cheese. A great evening all round!

L’expérience était sympa, nous n’étions que trois personnes donc nous avons eu une attention très personnalisée. Le vin goûté était très bon avec un petit accompagnement de fromage qui fait toute la différence dans le test des vins! Vous pouvez acheter les vins goûtés et de plus vous n’êtes pas du tout poussé à l’achat. Je recommande!

We tasted 5 different wines and the presentation gave me context for the different characteristics of the wine and signs of quality. I learned so much, got personal recommendations, and feel equipped to choose Greek wines for myself in restaurants or shops moving forward!
