Indelible Moments Around Wine at The Romanos, Costa Navarino

By Journey to Greece on July 4, 2018

Always found the world of wine mysterious and challenging? Found it difficult to make sense of arcane terms and find the right wine and food pairings for every occasion, all without cramming for a sommelier exam? Join Costa Navarino Wine Moments at The Romanos, a Luxury Collection Resort, a feast for the mind and the senses through the convivial marriage of food and wine.

The first of the Wine Moments series for the season on 28-29 April 2018, was around the much-acclaimed Alpha Estate, with its charismatic founder and passionate oenologist Angelos Iatridis and the multi-awarded AIWS Certified Sommelier Nikolas Giannopoulos together with The Romanos Head Sommelier Manos Kentikelenis, to enrich your wine knowledge and reveal the secrets of five premium wines of Alpha Estate during an exclusive wine Masterclass session.

As if the intoxicating aromas and intense textures of these singular wines weren’t treat enough for the palate, the wine tasting session was followed by a Degustation Dinner with nine creative dishes paired with Alpha Estate wines at the magnificent terrace of The Dunes Clubhouse in a scenery of alluring golf and Ionian Sea views. Close your eyes and try to feel the lingering taste of a delicately grilled sea bream, paired with an exquisite Alpha Estate Chardonnay 2015.

The Wine Moments journey continues in the season with praised local and international wineries, among which Italy’s leading Ornellaia vineyards from Tuscany on 26-27 July 2018, the prestigious Dom Pérignon champagne by Moët & Chandon in August 2018 and the Vins de Bordeaux experience in September 2018.

Wine Moments weekends, besides appreciating the endless years of work that go into just one good glass, offer an excellent opportunity to live in the lap of luxury at an Ionian Exclusive suite with Butler service, rejuvenate with signature therapies at the multi-awarded Anazoe Spa, tee off at any of Costa Navarino’s signature golf courses, or explore the beauty and rich culture of the destination through authentic activities and outdoor pursuits.
