Chef/Owner Michael Psilakis will lead you on a 5-course traditional Greek feast elaborately paired with a variety of celebrated Greek wines. The wines will come from Cava Spiliadis' portfolio, including selections by Ktima Biblia Chora and Ktima Gerovassiliou.


First course:

Shrimp Saganaki

shrimp baked with tomato & feta

Paired with Gerovassiliou Malagousia - an aroma of pear, pineapple and citrus as well as pepper and jasmine On the palate, the wine is aromatic with rich flavors of lemon peel.


Second course:

Papoutsakia
“Little shoes” of eggplant, stuffed with ground beef, eggplant, currants, pine nuts, kefalotiri

Paired with Biblia Chora Biblinos Oenos - truly unique with tinges of blueberry, pomegranate, ripe raspberries and rose petals. On the palate, luscious red fruits, chocolate ganache and dried herbs give this wine an elegant structure.


Third course:

Hilopites

stewed rabbit, tomato, cinnamon, mizithra cheese

Paired with Driopi Nemea Reserve - Full-bodied with fine tannins, complex aromas of red fruit with hints of eucalyptus and green bell pepper. Well-structured and balanced with a velvety palate and a long finish.


Fourth course:

Roasted Leg of Lamb

cretan rice pilaf

Paired with Gerovassiliou Avaton - A big wine full of plum, smoke, violets, cherry jam, earth and mocha aromas. The palate is quite punchy with lots of tannins enveloping the raisin, red and dark fruit flavors.


Fifth course:

Galaktoboureko

candied orange

Paired with Late Harvest Malagousia - a supreme dessert wine, with notes of honeysuckle and other florals, kumquat and other fruits (both stone and citrus), and an enchanting sweetness – all while being light and bright. The nectar of the gods!
