Tastes and Vineyards
From the SeaDream pier, board your coach for a 15 minute drive to Fabrika area located in Mykonos Town. Together with your guide start your walk through the labyrinth like narrow streets where you will first stop at the Old Bakery of Gioras to taste a warm, fresh made “koulouri” (sesame bun). Passing by the popular areas of “the three wells” and “Matoyinanni” where all the famous shops are located you reach the most photographed church of the island, Paraportiani. This unique church which combines five churches in one will be opened exclusively for you to visit. Continuing your walk you will pass by the open air fish and vegetable markets selling fresh local products. Passing by the waterfront where many cafes and restaurants are located you will stop at a traditional pastry shop to taste the local sweet “amygdaloto” and the local drink “soumada”. After your walking orientation of Mykonos town, board your bus again for a drive to the unusual Asimomitis winery and vineyards. You will be welcomed by the owner, Mr Asimomitis, the unique man who believes that by playing classical music to his wines increases the flavor and character of the wines, but you be the judge as you taste 3 different kinds of wine (red, white and sweet) together with fresh homemade local products and bread. Under the sounds of classical music you will be given the insight of the vineyard and the grapes. Following your visit to the winery you will return to the pier fulfilled with the tastes, smells and images of the real Mykonian life.
