Visit a traditional vineyard and prepare a hands-on delicious five-course meal onsite based on traditional recipes and techniques, under our expert guidance. Sample a variety of gourmet products and ingredients, all based on traditional recipes and techniques, using fresh, local ingredients.

The experience begins with a welcome herbal tea, soft drink or chilled red wine with citrus fruits, followed by a short presentation on the history of the property and vineyard. You’ll also learn about traditional olive-oil production and winemaking, thanks to a short entertaining video, as will as chat about the different dishes at different stages of cooking.

Discover the range of natural products under the Acordo brand, accompanied by the local liqueur (Tsipouro) or some good wine from the Ambelonas estate itself. The tasting will boast gourmet ingredients such as include local olives, spicy sundried tomato paste, goat cheese, Corfiot salami (salado) and noumboulo (fumicado), fig bites and fig chutney, local sweet fruit mustard, Jerusalem artichoke salad, and herbed or spicy sea salt, as well as wholegrain or wholewheat bread.

To top it off, you’ll be receiving a copy of chef Vasiliki Karounou’s cookbook in English, as you enjoy the warm hospitality and the gorgeous views of the vineyard in the very heart of the island.
