Ancient Diet and Wine Tasting at the Acropolis Museum
The Acropolis Museum
Dionysiou Areopagitou 15, Athens
12 May 2022
Wine, the gift of Dionysus! What was the relationship of the ancient Athenians with wine? How did they drink it and what did they accompany it with? But more generally, what did their diet include? Which products were local and which were imported? And what role did they play in the religious life of the city? These and many other questions are answered by the archaeologists of the Acropolis Museum in an out of the ordinary tour of its collections. A unique experience that is completed in the restaurant on the second floor with views of the Acropolis, with a meal prepared especially for the occasion paired by wine of the award-winning “Ktima Biblia Chora” Winery.
