Thank you for your appreciative comments. I love our wines and enjoy passing this love to others. Greek wines need further positive exposure, so pass on the message.

Byron's wine kamara feels like you're sitting in your friend's yard, very cozy with a nice old man serving you wine and something to eat..probably you'll end up drinking your wine with a warm cat in your feet.

Description
At Byron's Wine tasting Kamara we serve wines elaborated by Monemvasia Winery, produced from very old local varieties going back to the Middle Ages and probably earlier. The wines we serve are accompanied by delicious "mezze" (local tapas) made by Byron and his wife Vivienne. You will not only delight your taste buds but learn about the famous Malvasia-Monemvasia wine.
