Description

Dive deep into the art of wine tasting and discover the secrets of the Afianes winery. Learn to understand and feel the true character of each wine while an experienced guide walks you through the basic principles of wine tasting in a short wine tasting class.
Discover three young as well as two aged wines, and learn how to identify the special traits and nuances of the aged wines. The tasting class is accompanied by a cheese platter as well as rusks baked in a traditional wood-fired oven.
Learn not only how to identify different wine profiles but also how to select the right wine for each occasion.
Take a tour of the estate by visiting the “Pithostasi” where wine is fermented and aged in clay jars buried underground, and experience the winemaking method of the ancient Ikarians.
Take a close look at the granite press where grapes are trodden underfoot, and visit the pirate stone house of the winery, where the oldest wines of the estate are kept.
Visit the museum of the winery which hosts a collection of traditional Ikarian artifacts and thus immerse yourself in this timeless winemaking tradition.
