For those visiting Thessaloniki and Northern Greece in general, an introduction to the art of making a good wine is a unique experience. You shouldn't therefore miss the wine tour at the famous and distinguished Domaine Gerovassilsiou domaine (tel. +30 23920 44567, www.gerovassiliou.gr), at Epanomi (40-minute car ride from the centre of Thessaloniki).
You will be welcomed by the winery staff that will take you around the vineyards, and the modern, state-of-the-art facilities where the famous wine is produced, with respect to history and tradition. Don't forget to also visit the Wine Museum where you will familiarise yourself with the Greek wine heritage, through the extensive collection –one of the biggest worldwide– of bottles and bottle openers.
The tour ends with a tasting of the three most popular and characteristic wines of Domaine Gerovassiliou.
