The Robolo wine from Kefalonia

Wine has been made in Greece since ancient times. Dionysos (Dennis) is the god of wine in Greek mythology. Grapes have been grown for the production of wine for more than 6,000 years. Greece's climate + mountainous landscape are ideal for making good wines. It is almost certain that the Greeks furthered the knowledge of winemaking in Marseille and southern Italy. The Romans took over wine making from the Greeks. In the 14th century, many areas of Greece were populated by the Venetians. They brought new grape varieties. Greece was a leading wine country. However, in the 15th century, Greece fell into the hands of the Ottoman Empire. Drinking wine was forbidden. The problem came in the production of wine. Wine making continued slowly on the islands, despite the Ottomans.

Until Greece joined the EU, only table wine was produced. However, a classification system was subsequently established for Greek wines. There are now several dozen wine regions with an official POP (or PDO, Protected Designation of Origin) classification. One of them is Cephalonia. The ROBOLA is made in Kefalonia, among other things. A white dry and elegant wine with a crystal clear yellow color. You can taste the citrus fruits and the Mediterranean climate. It is an ideal wine with fish dishes or pasta. The Robola grape was brought to Kefalonia by the Venetians. This grape is only grown in the southern half of Kefalonia. The vineyards are located at an altitude of 400 to 800 meters. Winters are wet and mild and summers hot in Kefalonia. The soil is calcareous.

One of the most important wineries for the Robola is Robola Cooperative of Kefalonia, right next to the San Gerassimo Monastery. The cooperative now has 300 members who supply their grapes. The cooperative also produces other wines from indigenous grape varieties: white grape varieties are: Tsaoussi, Vostilidi, Mothonis. Red grape varieties are: Mavrodaphe and Agiorgitik. This winery should definitely be visited.

Feta cheese from Kefalonia

Discover Kefalonia's unique cheese treasures during your stay on the island! The famous Feta is made here, just like everywhere else in Greece. Made from sheep's and sometimes goat's milk, Feta has that distinctive bold, salty flavor that is perfect for salads, casseroles and baking. Packed in a saline solution, this cheese is packed with calcium, vitamin B12, vitamin D and amino acids. And to top it all off, Feta even contains fewer calories than most 30+ cheeses! Kefalonia's special Feta is simply delicious.

Another pride of Kefalonia is the Kefalotyri. Although nowadays found throughout Greece, let's take a moment here to enjoy its origins. Made from sheep and/or goat's milk, Kefalotyri has the same intense taste. Firmer in structure, this cheese is perfect for grilling.

Also try the Mizithra and the Prentza, a delicious combination of Mizitra, a few chunks of Feta, olive oil and thyme. A true taste explosion!

And who doesn't know the classic starter Saganaki? Named after the pan in which the cheese is fried, this dish is usually made with Kefalograviera, Kasseri or Kefalotyri. Served with a twist of lemon juice, this is a must-try during your stay. The word 'Saganaki' comes from the Greek 'sagani', which means a frying pan with two handles. A little linguistics for your taste adventure!

Orgeano from Cephalonia

Walk past babbling streams and colorful flower fields, where wild oregano and sweet marjoram grow in abundance. These fragrant herbs are part of the essence of Greek cuisine, and our friend and owner of a famous restaurant on the island, a true culinary visionary, regularly sets out to pick wild oregano for his delicious dishes in his famous restaurant in Skala .

Along the way you can enjoy breathtaking views and discover the rich natural diversity of this beautiful island. Experience the true essence of Kefalonia through the eyes of a connoisseur and be carried away by the enchanting aromas of wild oregano that fill the air with their unique charm.

Cruise to Itaca

You must have seen Ithaka once in your life. Is this excursion culinary? Well no, or is it? I had a delicious meal in the port of Kioni. And I guarantee you will be impressed. It is so nice to first arrive in Vathi, the capital, and then sail on to the idyllic Kioni... In Kioni there is time for dinner. A great cruise that you cannot miss. Odysseus probably sailed the same route in ancient times after 10 years of war in Troy and 10 years of wandering through Southern Europe. Would he have felt the same when he finally entered Vathi….
