It is one thing to taste wine but to see where it comes from and how it is made is an opportunity not to miss out on, especially if you are an oenophile by heart.
At The Excelsior we offer guests an exclusive experience to go on a private tour of the famous Gerovassiliou Estate, situated just a few kilometres from Thessaloniki on the slopes of Epanomi. Taste and discover the area where the world-renowned Ktima Gerovassiliou wines are produced with a behind-the-scenes tour. The 2-hour Vineyard Tour includes a short walk around the vineyard, a tour in the wine-production, bottling and ageing areas, as well as a visit to the Wine Museum.
But it doesn’t end there, the proof of excellence is in the taste. Sample 6 of Gerovassiliou Estate’s wines, alongside a variety of Greek cheese, in their special wine-tasting room while enjoying the breathtaking view of the estate’s vineyards.
