As one of the first agencies specialising in organised private culinary tours and gourmet activities, CorfuTrips.com are proud to be offering this unique tour.

The tour is ideal for foodies and food professionals who wish to experience the authentic taste of Corfu.  

Alongside the vineyard, within an estate where vine and olive cultivation existed for more than 400 years, the owner created a simple and adaptable space which combines the elements of traditional architecture.

The aim is to highlight local culture through an exhibition of traditional pre-industrial equipment for the production of wine and olive oil. A video made on the premises unravels these old traditions and takes you back to a time when everything was – and will always remain – natural in this little corner of Corfu.

The grapes the family grow are two of the old Corfiot varieties: Red “skopelitiko”, white “kakotrigis” andthe wine is produced by the traditional methods and is aged in oak barrels.

The taverna offers food from pure local ingredients - dishes of traditional and fusion flavors; delivers workshops in authentic traditional Corfiot cooking; hosts tasting tours of the wine produced by their family along with local quality produce and various entertainment and artistic events.

The taverna is designed and implemented with love and respect of natural setting and preserving environment. They follow water and energy saving policies, most materials used are biodegradable and recycled and are members of Greek “Ecotourism” organization.

They use many fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers grown in our estate or by local producers. Proximity is the major criterion in selecting our suppliers for various goods. They are members of the “Slow food” movement.

Vegetarian, vegan or gluten free meals may be prepared for you, at request.

This is a unique, full day private, guided tour, giving you the opportunity to experience the greatest part of Corfiot culture, cooking, eating and, of course, talking about food.  Irrespective of culinary experience, the taste of Corfu should not be missed!
