Current figures estimate that over half of holidaymakers are engaging in culinary tourism to some extent. Travellers are choosing holiday destinations at least in part or on the whole for the local food, farmers’ markets and foodie festivals available. Kavala, Greece is one such destination, for the serious wine connoisseur.
Most UK restaurants will not stock quality Greek wines and what is available in the supermarket is far from Greece’s best. To experience all that Greece has to offer to the wine connoisseur, a trip to Kavala is essential. Kavala is home to the Biblio Chora Estate. While it is a relatively new vineyard, the owners have a wealth of wine making experience. Biblio Chora wines are world renowned and award winning and the estate currently produces 11 different wines. A wine tasting on the estate is an unforgettable experience.
There’s more to Kavala than just wine, though. The castle atop the hill is the most striking image of this destination, though the neoclassical architecture and seaside views are equally fetching. Kavala holds a market every Saturday, another must-see attraction. Greece’s outdoor markets are an exotic experience and a great place to pick up fresh local produce to accompany your own bottle of Biblio Chora wine. You will also be able to pick up non-perishable souvenirs of your trip such as jewellery or jeans, for a fraction of what you would pay in the shops.
For gastronomic short breaks, Kavala must steal a spot on any top ten list. For extended foodie tours, including stops at places like Kalamata just to eat olives, Kavala is an essential stop. It is not regrettable, for it is unforgettable.
