Two different but connected worlds of creation cohabit its spaces; an icon painting workshop and a boutique winery. Both live on the hard work, the passion and the life of Giatras-Gkoumas family, confined in a traditional, refurbished home made of stone at the Zakynthian countryside.
Fine Greek wine from the Ionian, made in the old ways and certified by the modern. In our winery you will find not regular, commercial labels, but only varieties provided within the history and culture of the Heptanese: rare, red Avgoustiatis and lively, golden Robola.
“A tour of Art & Wine includes:
– Strolling navigation. Walk through the cobbled alleys, under the pergolas and along stone pathways, all made by Giannis Giatras. Several sitting spots made of wood or stone allow you to rest any moment.
-Introduction to traditional wine making. Take a close look at our vines and the store rooms. Despoina and Eviana Giatra gladly explain (in English) the progress of this year’s crop and answer your questions about grape cultivation and good wine.
-Wine tasting stop in the especially set cellar of the estate. Under the proper, low-light the wine requires, try any of our varieties and enjoy treats made by Despoina.
-Reverie in our garden. Sit comfortably under the Zakynthian sky, listening only to nature’s sounds.
-Display of wines, herbs and homemade goods. Purchase nature’s best for your home or friends.
-Display of icon paintings, handmade by Giannis Giatras.”
