Athens Wine Weekend provides three days of events for both the wine aficionado and those who'd like to learn more alike.
Friday's reception is a sampling of several chefs' cooking artistry, all paired with the perfect wine to arouse the palate. Wine lovers can purchase tickets to select wine seminars on Saturday, as well as a premier Food and Wine experience.
The Saturday afternoon Grand Tasting will showcase hundreds of wines from around the world in the Grand Hall from 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
The Gourmet Dinner on Saturday night is a treat for the senses, featuring carefully selected wines with each course. As each course is served, the weekend's emcee introduces the dish and the wine, explaining the interplay between the two and why each wine was selected. The dinner is one of the most eagerly anticipated aspects of the week. This six-course Gourmet Dinner featuring dazzling presentations, expertly complemented by a wine selected specifically for each course is from 6:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m. in Athena Ballroom.
Topping off the last day is the Sparkling Wine Brunch. Featuring complimentary beverages and a feast of breads, sweets and meats, the brunch is a perfect way to close an extraordinary weekend of new discoveries.
