Escape Option 1
We start our Wine Escape by visiting the Klados winery near Panormos to enjoy a signature wine breakfast from traditional local produce, the big twist here is that we will be pairing it with the full range of Klados wines!
The winemaker, Stelios, will tell us about his wines and the popular and indigenous grape variety, ‘Vidiano’.
On the drive back, we stop at Margarites, a picturesque little village famous for its pottery and handcrafts for a stroll and some souvenir shopping, for those who wish to do so.
Escape Option 2
This Wine Escape begins with a visit to the Kourkoulos winery in Amari to enjoy a wine breakfast from local produce, while tasting the full range of Kourkoulos wines. Polyxeni will tell us about the promising and graceful indigenous grape variety, ‘Liatiko’ and the art of winemaking.
We can then have a stroll in the vineyards to learn more about viticulture. On the drive back we visit the Saint Antonio's gorge and its hidden cave church, devoted to the Saint with the same name.
