The 6th annual wine tasting of the Wines of Peloponnese took place last Sunday at the Hilton, in Athens.
More than 20 winemakers were ready to guide hundreds of eager oenophiles through their wines some of which were even bottled just for the event as this year’s harvest has only just ended.
The event started at 13:00 and until 21:00 nearly 2000 people passed through the hotel’s doors, ready to meet with the producers, and talk about everything, except the political situation.
Carefully placed on each table, you could find and taste a wide variety of wines, including some of the most prestigious PDO (Protected Designation of Origin) and PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) wines.
The opportunity was unique, and everybody was in a great mood, and when I say everybody I mean everybody..
Glasses were full, people were talking about grape varieties, favorite wines, new tastes of the evening, and wineries to visit.
The organizers, Vinetum Wine Communications and ENOAP (Greek acronym for Wine Producers Union of the Peloponnesian Vineyard) did a great job as always, and what they really achieved, was not just to connect the winemakers with the public, but to keep the focus on the wine no matter what!
