After a few years, I decided it was time to return home: Athens, Greece. I worked at hotels and restaurants for a few more years. The last few, I was working at an American travel agency specialising in incoming classical studies tours. As I traveled around Greece, I discovered the cultural wealth & heritage through the eyes of the classical scholars. I realised how deep our roots go.
A ‘joyful baker’ and cook, when motherhood was bestowed upon me, I started searching and sourcing wholesome ingredients to nurture my daughter and loved ones -isn’t it how it all starts, anyway?
With time and growing curiosity, I wanted to know not only how produce is grown, but also who is the person behind the label- I longed to share the joy of creation! The more I got to know them better, the more I could see happiness and gratitude, that their hard work was celebrated and acknowledged!
I had an epiphany: my life’s path should be devoted in bringing together the wine adventurists, the travellers with a knack for authentic experiences, closer to the people who cultivate and “vini cultivate” the Greek earth. That was it!
My professional background, my love for wine, food and quality ingredients, along with travel and honest hospitality, brought me to lay the foundation of what developed into the concept behind Margo wine routes: putting together wine & food tours in Greek wine producing areas with all of you on board! ‘Kalo taxidi’!
