Greek Wine 101 ; Zoom-inar with Aris of Eklektikon Imports

friday 1/28 @6pm

Join us for an exciting Zoom-inar with Aris Soultanos of Eklektikon Imports, a company dedicated to sourcing some of the finest, most exciting Greek wines since 2011.

Eklektikon was born out of a passion for wine, Greek heritage, and the realization that Greek wine and culture were not properly represented in the US. Their vision was the creation of a “bridge” between Greek tradition and the US market, in the form of imported handcrafted natural Greek wines.

Grab your pairing-pack and get ready to travel to the Greek Islands with us!! ….if only in our dreams, for now 😉

Shower bouquets bring the perfect touch to your daily shower routine. The steam gently opens the pores of the eucalyptus, turning your shower into a spa while having the healing properties of the herbs and flowers. Perfect for headaches, congestion, fevers, anxiety and simple bliss.
