Second Day of the Birthday Celebrations
After meeting with the birthday lady we just knew it would be perfect choice to throw the party at such a unique place as Oenotria Land.
With the guidance of Michel Rolland, Oenotria Land proves that the Attica vineyard can produce red wines of the highest quality. The story behind this magnificent vineyard is amazing. Oenotros, the youngest son of King Lycaon, was, according to mythology, the first greek who left his land and founded a colony in the bay of Taranto, in souther Italy and produced wine. Oenotria Land was founded in Kapandriti and produced wine in the, rich in wine history, land of Attica.
The estate includes a small modern winery, for the vinification of the grapes from their private vineyard. But, Oenotria Land is a lot more. In the 10.500 square metre complex the owners have created the Costa Lazaridi Wine Museum, hall for professional and social events, conference rooms and, of course, underground cellars for the ageing of wines.
Entering the winery opened the door to a new world of flavors and experiences. The owners came out to greet everyone and as planned a private tour initiate the second day of the birthday celebrations. The wine and the food menu was carefully matched to balance the wine tasting process. It wasn’t just a wine tour but a moveable feast of life, as Hemingway once said in his famous book.
Winter is the perfect period for indoors parties. And the wintery & festive inspiration was reflected in the décor and flower arrangements all over the place. The fine crystals, the greenery, the stone walls, the lines and the candles created the welcoming atmosphere that went beyond and made it feel like home. Candles are not only for romantic occasions, as they are indeed a timeslless asset on a table set up.
