The Wine Library at Hotel Grande Bretagne in Athens

By Journey to Greece on April 16, 2018

A new venue opens its doors to wine connoisseurs in the center of Athens. We proudly introduce you to a unique setting, The Wine Library, located at the mezzanine of GB Corner at Hotel Grande Bretagne. A distinct “library”, showcasing all of the 3.500 wine labels of the historic hotel. The impressive 19th century table, serves for private wine tastings and unique wine pairing meetings, while the wines are stored to the appropriate temperature within the eye-catching, glassy showcase.

It would be a miss if we did not mention that the legendary hotel will officially open the doors of its Wine Library to another series of Wine Stories that will take place every month. Wine Journeys, Legends of the Wine industry and Food Pairing workshops would be just few of the many events to come. On Thursday, 26 of April, the Wine Library will host the very first “Wine Legends of the World” with great honor. See more about The Wine Stories 2018 by The Wine Library here.
