EPIC WINE TOURS p.c. is a company founded by Mr. Elias Anthidis and Μr.Patroklos Koudounis who decided to join forces when they realized that their knowledge and passion for fine wine, Greek cuisine and extraordinary trips, can be the perfect “yeast” for a company that aims to offer all the above at the highest quality level!
Ilias holds the reins of one of the largest wine and spirits merchants of Greece. The accumulated experience is unique when one considers that his grandfather founded CAVA ANTHIDIS in 1945, when he first imported and sold Johnnie Walker Red Label outside of the Athens Stock Exchange. Ilias, who holds a degree on wine studies, has a 10-year managerial experience and an inexhaustible appetite for the promotion of Greek wine and culinary art, has asked from the best winemakers, chefs and hoteliers of Greece to support EPIC WINE TOURS with all their forces. Their response was remarkable and the result, as you will soon confirm, has been impressive.
Patroklos is an economist and a political scientist. He has worked as a commercial and general manager in multinational groups and listed companies. Today, he runs the consulting firm ADEQUATE ( www.adequate.gr ), that he founded in 2007. He is an elected member of the Board of Directors of the Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry. A passionate traveler, with great love for traditional cuisine and fine wine, closely follows the recommendations of his good friend Ilias on the above, and offers his input on issues related to the perfection of services during the trip.
The third member of our management team is Ms Elli Nathalie Korré. Elli has 25 years experience in wine promotion and wine tourism and is specialized in organizing wine tours in France. Being half-French and, therefore, equipped with the necessary love for wine, she offers her skills and experience with always adding a dose of elegance and finesse in every aspect of the trip.
