ANCIENT WINE GUYS events are a truly unique experience! We take our guests on unforgettable viticultural and culinary tours through a range of themes connected to the archaeological, mythological, and topographical history of wine. We also offer exclusive bi-monthly live guided tastings on Zoom to our Ancient Wines Club members and their guests. Check out the recordings of some of our past club tastings here on our YouTube channel.

Coming in December!

Did you know that the Olympic Games were actually just one of four major athletic festivals held in ancient Greece, along with events at Isthmia, Delphi, and Nemea? In this exciting, one-time event, we will be exploring the history of all four Panhellenic Games sites and tasting through four incredible wine connected with the festivals held there. Sales for the live event are now closed, but the wines may be purchased by request if you'd like to taste along with the YouTube recording that will be posted after the event! Reach out to us by email to place an order.
