Georgia’s passion for wine was always present, until she decided to quit her corporate life and devote herself to it. When people ask her why, she replies: “because ..wine is life”. From chemical engineering to wine, she loves creativity and problem solving. She realized that people can be easily intimidated by wine. The challenge was to make it friendly, and invite wine lovers to her world. Her international wine studies in 2017, inspired her to create @wine.gini, sharing her life changing experience visiting and studying in 30 wine countries. Having experience in both Old and New world wine regions, her work is trusted by wine brands worldwide, with a trusted audience including wine pros, wineries, wine brands and wine lovers from around the world!

Enjoy the breakfast our hostess has prepared at the picturesque green water of Limenas port. This is a day of thalassophilia, a day where you could find that highly anticipated peace of mind you deserve. As we’ re headed for Aliki, Marble beach is ideal for a swim stop. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking like nothing you have ever seen before, as the waters are light blue-turquoise and the sand is pure white stone marble creating a beautiful mixture of colours.
Waking up at a wonderful aquamarine natural harbour is what you signed up for! Surrounded by pine trees, Aliki is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. The crystal clear water is part shallow part deep with a gorgeous underwater rocky landscape which makes it perfect for snorkelling. The isolated emerging rocks hide a home for many plants and adorable sea creatures. Wanna take a picture? Please, use our waterproof cameras!
Samothrace is an unspoiled and mystical Greek island where nature is still in its wilder forms. Get lost in the natural landscape and lush vegetation, which is rarely seen in the Greek islands. Visit its clear streams of cascading waterfalls and rock pools for swimming. After a full day relax on board, read the book you haven’ t had the time to read, take lots of pictures, luxuriate in doing nothing. Oh wait, was that a dolphin?
The production does not exceed 2000-3000 bottles per year. The small series focus on the production of museum wines in order to provide visitors and the international wine world with insights into how wine tasted in antiquity. Product is reduced to three main wines, which can be joined by two other products, depending on the vintage. Here, the artisanal approach is paramount, especially as the focus is on ageing the wines in ancient amphorae, so-called pithoi/kioupi. The maceration times are extended and the ageing of the wines is low tech. This approach follows the preservation of the wines, as it was the case 2000 years ago. This special technique is an antagonist to the fresh and fruity easy-drinking ceremonies of modern times and makes use of the ancient etheric and aesthetics of the Thassian microclimate..
Take a walk around the organic vineyard and see first-hand Biblia Choras’ philosophy turn into action at the estate. The rocky soil and climate, influenced by the cooling Aegean breezes are key factors for the domaine, from cultivation to vinification. Once again, we won’ t leave without giving their multiple award-winning wines a taste-trust in us, they are more than worth it! Are you daydreaming of making your own wine? You can tell us all about it over candlelight dinner on board!
