The wine-making tradition in Corfu is many centuries old. The Odyssey, written by the renowned Greek poet Homer in the eighth century BC, contains a description of Corfu’s wines, indicating that the island has been producing wine for a very long time. Corfu was covered in vineyards up to the Venetian era in the Middle Ages when numerous grapevines were cut down to make way for olive trees.
Nowadays, locals are proud of their tradition and, very often, will bring you a bottle of their family wine as a precious gift.
Apart from the purely familiar production, several are the wineries that offer their visitors a glimpse of their premises and a session of wine tasting. Pontiglio (Lefkimmi), Nikolouzo Estate (Ano Korakiana), Livadioti (Halikounas), Grammenos (Sinarades), or Theotoky (Liapades) are some of the best known family vineyards. Some of the grapes they grow are of very old origin, and some are local varieties such as Kakotrygis and Skopelitiko grapes.
After the wine tasting in Corfu, our guests will visit Paleokastritsa Bay, often known as the “Capri” of Greece. Located on the West coast of the island, this is a very popular resort with distinctive natural beauty made up of rocky formations and bays with blue waters. A stop to the Byzantine Monastery of the Blessed Virgin Mary (16th century) in Paleokastritsa will be provided, as well as access to its tiny museum housing notable Byzantine icons and artifacts from early Christian churches.
