Naoussa winemakers held for the third consecutive year the wine event “Naoussa, City of Wine”. This year’s event was very successful and had numerous food and wine tasting events, a wine conference with a lot of interesting topics covering fields from organic farming to exports and marketing, and a great tasting of the wines of the 20 members of Naoussa Winemakers and Vine-growers Association. Restaurants offered delicious food and wine pairing menus at special prices and a lot of Xinomavro wines offered by the glass. Additionally, we were pleased to see the new logo of Naoussa Winemakers Association, with the tagline: “Naoussa – the bloodline of Xinomavro”.
One of the highlights of the last day of “Naoussa, City of Wine” celebration was our second Kir-Yianni Wine and Cheese Game that took place at Ktima Kir-Yianni on Sunday December 13th, 2015 and lasted for two hours. Our guests had the chance to relax and admire the breathtaking view of Ktima Kir-Yianni’s balcony and at the same time enjoy an unforgettable gastronomic experience. Marina Boutari, event hostess, Andonis Kioseoglou, chief wine-maker, and Michalis Bampis, gastronomy consultant, paired six selected wines of Kir-Yianni, from Naoussa and Amynteo, with a great selection of cheeses from all over Greece and with hand-made Greek chutneys from Chefstories.
