At 9:30 AM, I was picked up at my hostel, and along with a German family of three, we drove South.

We were let out at a bike rental shop. It being Autumn, there was a serious chill in the air, and I soon realized it was exacerbated once you began pedaling.


The ride to our Filosofos, a small, family owned organic winery was no more than 15-minutes, but I could barely feel my knuckles by the time we arrived. As the winemaker’s daughter began the tour, I hoped it would last long enough for us to warm up.

Having already visited three larger wineries on my previous tour, I found the visit to Filosofos to be a nice change. Our guide, along with her siblings, were following in their parent’s footsteps by learning about the winemaking process.

And I appreciated the fact that they are taking an organic approach to growing the grapes.
