Marina Boutari, Founder and Managing Director of Trip2taste said: “I am very excited about this wine-tourism consulting project for three different reasons: firstly because I will work with me beloved cousin Stelios, and the dynamic team of Kir-Yanni, secondly because we will have the opportunity and joy of designing the new visiting center of Kir-Yianni from scratch, a job that I like a lot and have great experience, and thirdly because I will be working at a vineyard that I have numerous beautiful childhood memories!”
