Wines from Jura, France's most obscure wine region

Did you think you knew all the wine regions of the most famous wine country in the world (yes, France)? Think again! The motherland of terroir has still lots of surprises in her sleeve. 

Her name is Jura. Jura’s wines are different from wines made anywhere else in the world. Which is exactly what makes this region so much fun to explore!

8 surprising wines from the South of Italy

I love the wines of the Italian South! There are still so many undiscovered grapes and wine styles. So unique. It's unlikely that you will ever get to taste them if you do not hunt them down or travel to specific regions of Italy and ask for them specifically. For my personal study of wines from the South of Italy, I have 8 different bottles of very special wines, most of which I'm sure you've never heard of! Exciting right?!

Big Volcanic Wines

Big Volcanic Wines

California, Etna, Vesuvius, Lanzarote, Santorini, Cape Verde, Hawai, New Zealand...Places where lava and ashes destroyed towns, even whole civilizations, but give us today big wines of exceptional character and quality.

Wines born in ashes, at extremely inhospitable environments, give real dimension in what we call terroir (= the land from which the grapes are grown imparts a unique quality to the wines, that is specific to that growing site). These wines often share a few common traits: fresh acidity, minerality, intense aromas and great aging potential.

In this meetup, we will taste 6 exceptional wines (white and red) produced in volcanic soils. Expect to have 3-4 full glasses of wine with accompanying finger food. As always good wines, good bites and good people! This time, we will blow up your taste buds ;-) Hope to see you there!

Get your ticket here!

Athens Wine Lovers Kick-off Meetup: Greek Winter Reds

Right before all Greek wine makers come together to showcase their babies at Oenorama 2016, we kick start our very first Athens Wine Lovers Meetup with an all-time classic wine lovers theme: Winter reds...

A glass of strong, full-bodied red wine is arguably the best companion on a cold winter night; ok perhaps next to a blanket, a fireplace and a warm hug 😊 we can't really take care of the latter, but we can at least work on the wine. Let's come together to taste, share and tell the stories of our favorite red wines. Let's hold on to the winter feeling a little longer by bringing good wines and good people together!

Get your tickets here!

What to expect?

  • Informal and laid back atmosphere. No suits & no snobs please! 
  • We are drinking the wine, not just tasting it
  • Good wine storytelling
  • 6-7 wines from Greek and international grapes paired with the appropriate finger food

Awesome wines you've never heard of [Part #2]

Since our upcoming meetup on February 5th is sold-out, but sign-up requests keep coming in, we just decided to throw another meetup with the same concept, wines, food and set-up 2 weeks after! So... 

Awesome Wines You've Never Heard Of - Part #2

Just like in Part #1 in this event we will taste the underdogs of the wine world. Wines you've never tried, or even heard before; wines from countries you didn't know they made wine, rare grape varieties, special winemaking methods. We will go for the rare finds!

As always good wines, good bites and good people in a cool space in Rotterdam! This time, with an extra edge ;-)

**Please do not forget to get your tickets in advance, so I can get the proper amount of wine and food to last us through the event :)**
