This afternoon (May 16) was classically Grecian. After we left the Vravrona Museum, we rode the bus to the Domaine Papagiannakos winery in Attica. We were lucky enough to have a wine testing led by our guide from the American Hellenic University.
But first, a tour of the winery:
After the tour, we sat in a lovely and gracious space and were schooled on how not to drink like barbarians …
… and tasted wines from Malagouzia to Retsina to Cabernet Sauvignon.
Once we’d finished enjoying our wine, we enjoyed a fantastic seafood meal. At the very European lunch time of 4:00 pm, we settled in at a clifftop restaurant and submitted ourselves to Tala and the restauranteur. The mussels were by far the best I’ve ever had.
Finally, we topped off the day with a visit to the Temple of Poseidon, which we could see at the top of the hill from our beach.
Some grouse make their home at the temple. We enjoyed their presence and their commentary as much as we did the monument.
What a day! It was packed, and it was wonderful.
