Aegean Cheese and Wine is one of the two gastronomic experiences of Taste of Culture, the brand new cultural and gastronomic initiative of Cycladic Art Museum and Trip2taste that takes place every Thursday and Friday at the Cycladic Café. Aegean Cheese and Wine has been created for Wine lovers who appreciate beauty, are interested in learning and enjoy sensory adventures.
Aegean Cheese and Wine takes place every Thursday from 18:30 to 21:00 at the Cycladic Café of Cycladic Art Museum. It starts with a tailor made tour of “Wine in Antiquity”. Your tour guide, a talented archeologist, will show you selected exhibits that reveal the history of wine and its role to the everyday life of ancient Greeks. Basic stops of the tour are: the worship of Dionysus, the god of the grape harvest, winemaking and wine, the production and types of wine in antiquity, the diet of Ancient Greeks and last but not least the ceremonies and the ritual of Symposium. The experience reaches its peak with an Aegean cheese and wine tasting of 4 selected premium cheeses of the Aegean combined with 4 wines of awarded winemakers from different parts of Greece. The cheese selection will change seasonally and the wines monthly so that the lovers of Aegean art, history and gastronomy will have the chance to explore different culinary combinations.
