Wine Tasting

DIONYSUS HAD UNRIVALLED TASTE

ABOUT

Who could ever think of Greece existing without grapes and vines, a country in which up to this day more than 300 different grape varieties are cultivated. It is no coincidence then that the worshiping of Dionysus emerged here and wine crop was re-evaluated via association to man’s most significant moments.

Today it is known that wine consumption is quite beneficial for our health yet what is more significant is that the very pleasure of drinking wine can be increased when in good company. It is beyond any doubt that the process of drinking wine is a human-centered ritual.

In this way every time a bottle of wine is opened, the participants of this little fest unconsciously follow the trails of the wandering fellowship of Dionysus.
