Attica Wine and Food Experience is Launched

Unity is an absolute necessity in Greece in times of crisis, especially when there is a shared interest and Attica-Wine And Food Experience, has proven just that.

After many years of trying, wine makers and gastronomy professionals have finally formed this organisation, which now enables them to promote wines from Attica.

Wine producers; tourism professionals; caterers; and wine and gastronomy lovers, have all joined forces in this project, hoping that the wine loving community will be pleasantly surprised by the new flavours of Retsina and Savvatiano.
