Cooking Odyssey of Northern Greece and Santorini
10 days

Tour Details

Mountainous Northern Greece and volcanic Santorini offer the gourmand many pleasures.  In Northern Greece, wine lovers will enjoy the full-bodied, age-worthy red wines of Naoussa that have been compared to fine Barolos and pair well with the region’s unique, hearty cuisine – with its Turkish and Balkan influences and ingredients as varied as mushrooms, tomatoes, fruits, cheeses, and game.  Guests will also revel in the region’s great natural beauty of mountains, lakes, and waterfalls and relive the days of great rulers as you visit the Royal Tombs of Vergina (a UNESCO World Heritage site).

From Northern Greece, guests may choose to continue their tour and transfer to the breathtaking island of Santorini, home to the noble Assyrtiko varietal that produces bone-dry mineral whites that pair well with seafood and world famous dessert wines.  Guests will enjoy private tastings with renowned winemakers, cooking lessons with celebrated chefs, and delicious dinners featuring island specialties such as fava pureé, white eggplant, and tomato fritters.  There will also be time to visit Akrotiri (a Bronze Age settlement), take in the stunning caldera views, and watch the world’s most famous sunset before returning to Athens where the tour ends.

Day 1-2. Athens

Your tour starts in Athens, where you will be treated to a private walking tour of the sites of ancient Athens and the Acropolis Museum, followed by an introduction to the “appetizer culture” of Greece at a local tavern. There we will share a meal of mezédes (small plates of appetizers) such as grilled sardines, keftedákia (small meatballs), saganaki (pan-seared cheese), or grilled eggplant with feta cheese, accompanied by our favorite Greek wines. You will continue your food and wine education with a very special evening hosted by a Master of Wine. There will be an introduction to the important indigenous grape varietals and major wine regions of Greece, as you enjoy a gourmet meal of Greek specialties. Accommodations: 5* luxury hotel in Athens City Center with wonderful Acropolis views from the rooftop restaurant.

There will be time for relaxation in Nymfaio, one of the most beautiful villages in all of Europe. Visit the bear preserve, ride one of the village horses that roam its cobblestone streets, or savor a Greek coffee with a spoon sweet (fruit in syrup) at a café overlooking the valley. Guests who wish to end their tour after Northern Greece will transfer by air to Athens, with the rest of the group, the morning of Day 7.
