Wine Club in Athens?

eviemichael Nov 6, 2009 07:50 AM

I am trying to find a wine club in Athens, or in any of the suburbs around Athens. I found a site www.wineclub.gr but it doesn't seem to have any group events- more of an online community.
I appreciate any suggestions!

    There was a wine shop/vault (kava) near Panormou Sqr called Svolos (http://maps.google.com/maps/place?cid...) that had wines from small producers across Greece. They also used to do wine tasting, seminars etc.

    I dont know if they are still there and if they still that stuff, but it had a treasure of wines to taste.

        Should I presume that it;s not there anymore?

          I looked into it, but didn't find much information. Then I asked a friend who had been there and says they have activities but it doesn't foster much of a community. I'm still going to check it out though, thanks for mentioning it! There's also a great new wine shop that opened in Pireaus, in the Marina Zeas area, that is beautiful with a huge collection.

              I managed to passby today, but it seems that it has closed and there is now a cafeteria in it's place.
              This is unfortunate because it was very good and you could find lots of different wines from small vineyards. Too bad :( :(

                  Yep, there is a cafeteria place where it used to be (on Louizis Riankour street, just off Panormou). However, I believe that it has moved to a side street, off Riankour, very close to where it used to be. I'll check and revert.
