The Anoskeli village is exclusively residential, with diminishing population due to a continuous movement of villagers to more centralized areas. It was the family’s ambition to build a space that could attract and welcome visitors.
As such, the Wine Tasting room was constructed to welcome guests who want to taste the Company’s products and become acquainted with the production procedure of olive oil and wine.
The wine tasting room has taken its name from the family’s mother, EIRINI, to honor the love and strong values she bestowed to her children. Art and photography exhibitions, as well as other social events are hosted from time to time, thereby bringing life into the village.
Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm from mid-March to mid-October.
