Μπράβο! (Well done!)
The inaugural OINOFILIA.wine was φοβερο! (That’s Greek for amazing!)
Despite Melbourne’s enormous Greek population, Greek wine was a topic that not too many of us were familiar with. But that was before Oinofilia.
Thanks to a partnership with New Wines of Greece, we were able to bring a whole bunch of winemakers over from Greece and put on Melbourne’s first Greek wine festival.
But it wasn’t just a first for us. Oinofilia was a first for the winemakers, too – the first time they had been involved in a consumer-focused event (which had sold out!)
Aside from the wonderful new wines, there was incredible food from Sweet Greek, Epocha and Elyros restaurants, plus Greek coffee from Oasis Coffee. And let’s not forget the Zorba!
We’re excited to take this event to Sydney and Singapore in 2018… bring it on!
