Rustica Gift Visits Ambelonas Winery of Corfu, Greece

Rustica Gift Visits Ambelonas Winery of Corfu, Greece

What a vivid, delicious and extraordinarily hospital introduction to the sustainable viniculture, food and history.  While we were on the artisan pottery and handcraft hunt among Corfu, Greece's richly talented artistic community, we couldn't resist a visit to this beautiful and historic winery.  Although the tradition of Mexico's Talavera pottery is much beloved by us, we know there is a world of history and tradition to be explored, and we can't wait to share!

Although it was off season, the owners graciously allowed us to visit, so we had the privilege of visiting Corfu's oldest winery, founded in the 16th century by the Venetian descendants of today's owners.

Vasiliki Karounou and her husband now run Ambelonas Winery. Please read their amazing history and commitment to sustainable, green wine and olive oil production, and slow food:

Beautiful Greek Pottery Rustica Gift & Pottery New Artisan Site Visit Ambelonas

Beautiful handcrafted Greek pottery, displayed on the grounds of Ambelona's 16th Century family-owned vineyards.

The stunning winery and olive oil making site isn't just beautiful - every square inch is devoted to sustainable food production and viticulture.

It was an extraordinary visit, and the hospitality, wine and food was as stunning as the view as Corfu, Greece's iconic Ambelonas Vineyard and Winery.
