The wine routes and varieties of four Greek regions – Macedonia, Peloponnese, Cyclades and Crete – were presented by Michelin-starred Chef Ollie Dabbous to foreign journalists during a gastronomy event that was held recently in London’s high-end “Hide” restaurant.

The Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO) service in the UK and Ireland participated in the event titled “Undiscovered European Wines in collaboration with Ollie Dabbous”, that aimed to introduce and promote Greek wines abroad as well as connect wine with gastronomy tourism.

The event was attended by 20 media representatives from Times, Daily Mail, BBC London Inside Out, National Geographic Traveller Food, S Magazine (Sunday Express), The World of Fine Wine and Decanter. Also present were influencers specializing in gastronomy.

“All guests embraced this effort while agreements sealed during the event include two press trips and extended media coverage for Greece,” the GNTO said in an announcement.
