Wine museum in Athens

The Wine Museum is located in Pallini, a northeastern suburb of Athens that is easily accessible by the metro and opened its gates to the public in 2005. The museum was established by the Markou family that has a long tradition of 4 generations in the winemaking business.

It was in late 19th century when Spiridon Markou decided to cultivate his own vineyards in the area of Mesogaia, which was known since antiquity for the production of superior wine due to the ideal climate and soil. In 1920, he opened a tavern in the downtown area of Psiri where he sold his retsina (a dry white wine variety) which became famous by word of mouth. Soon there was an extended need for greater wine production, and thus the art of winemaking became part of the Markou family. In 1983 the modern winery of the family was established in Paiania, while more vineyards were cultivated in the area of Nemea, in Peloponnese.

The Wine Museum is located at an old vineyard and exhibits a very interesting collection of old tools as well as a rich collection of photos related to wine history and tradition. Guests can partake in wine tasting events and try the supreme wines and products, while there is also the ability to reserve the Museum grounds and host your own reception, where the meals can be prepared by the “Cave Cuisine”, the Museum’s food catering.
