Fodor's Expert Review Ambelonas

Pelekas Winery/Brewery/Distillery
Free
Tucked away in the countryside between Corfu Town and Pelekas, this extensive wine estate has a large acreage under local-variety vines, in addition to olive groves and forest. At its center is an olive press and winery, reconstructed in traditional style, housing preindustrial olive presses and a large collection of associated agricultural equipment. Visitors can watch a video presentation showing the time-honored process of oil- and winemaking. Outside, in a yard shaded by pergolas, a restaurant serves a small but very select menu of seasonal local dishes—many resurrected from old recipe collections. A small shop selling local products showcases the owner's much-awarded preserves and the estate wines. Ambelonas also hosts public events such as cooking courses, concerts, and workshops.
