Wine Tasting
Experience in Corfu

The Greek vineyard is a ‘Terra Incognita’ to most wine lovers. Interestingly, there is an impressive plethora of ancient indigenous grape varieties. Most importantly, our unique wine styles are closely related to fascinating old traditions yet to be shared between us. Following my own research, I can now creatively match these distinctive wine offerings with my personal reimagined recipes from a bygone era.
Therefore, I warmly invite you to an exciting, fun and memorable gastronomic journey.

Reservations

Our gastronomic experiences are available on a daily basis either at 1:30pm or 7:30pm upon reservation only. Our cruise-ship guests can request for our special timings because of their short stay on the island. Prices above apply only in Corfu Town. In case you would like to enjoy these events at your villa or apartment, please contact us for further clarifications and pricing. Both events can accommodate up to ten guests in order to maintain an intimate and convivial atmosphere.
Additionally, all reservations operate on a prepayment system of the 50% of the total amount to confirm your booking. Also, this amount will be deducted from your bill on the day/evening of the event. Furthermore, any cancellations can be made two days in advance of the reservation to receive a full refund. If you’d like to cancel your reservation or reduce in numbers after this time, we reserve the right to retain payment.
Everything is designed to provide a Dine like home culinary experience for our guests to relish. For this reason, we respectfully ask for each guest to arrive 5 minutes before their reservation time. Late arrivals may miss courses or in the event of being over 30 minutes late, will be unable to be seated.

Moreover, we kindly request to let us know of any serious allergies or dietary requirements in advance. As we are a very small team, who plan and prepare everything fresh each day, we may thus not be able to cater for all allergies.

Please make your reservation or discuss an idea and plan your private event with us by emailing at contact@si-gastronome.com

Stamatis Iseris

‘De gustibus non est disputandum’

Stamatis is a pure expression of the Corfiot ‘terroir’! From his early years, he developed genuine passion for gastronomy as his mother was a Chef and his father a restaurateur. Hence, he followed the same path and completed his Advanced Hospitality Studies including Culinary Arts. He has worked in various food and beverage management roles throughout his career in 5* hotels and michelin-starred restaurants both in Greece and the UK.

His main belief is that there is no food without wine or wine without food. Therefore, in order to achieve harmonious pairings you need deep knowledge for both. Consequently, he is a holder of WSET’s flagship Diploma-Level 4 in Wines and Spirits, WSET Hestia-An Advanced Certificate of the World of Greek Wine and also of his Advanced Sommelier title from the Court of Master Sommeliers.

 

Additionally, because of his desire to expand his gastronomic horizons, he travelled around Europe and Greece to traditional food and wine destinations such as Crete, Tuscany, Alsace, Loire, Mosel, Northern Rhône, Champagne and the volcanic islands of Lanzarote and Santorini. Recently, he returned to his homeland after spending several years in the UK working closely with renowned Chefs as a Head Sommelier and Wine Buyer in such venues as The Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland and the michelin-starred restaurant La Trompette in Chiswick, London.

As well as being a perpetual traveller, passionate gastronome and a fun educator, he is currently studying for his Master Sommelier Diploma. All in all, he now craves to share his knowledge, experience and authentic Corfiot recipes with all his guests in Corfu.

  2. The wine tasting that Stamatis organized in a wonderful cosy place in the centre of Corfu town was a wonderful professional experience accompanied by tasting gourmet dinner plates with local flavours! 4 tasting experiences within 4 weeks period.The variety of eclectic wines offered to the small (but special) group of friends allowed me to explore new flavors especially from France and New World and discover my personal favorites. Stamatis as knowledgeable high level sommelier provided interesting and informative insights on each wine using digital tools, and I especially enjoyed learning about the different regions and grape varietals especially from Burgundy area. The overall atmosphere was relaxed and enjoyable with making it the perfect setting to savor each sip and appreciate the unique qualities of each wine. I left feeling not only satisfied but also enriched by the experience. I can’t wait to attend another wine tasting in the future! At last Corfu is on the wine map..! Kudos to Stamatis!

  3. What an absolute plesaure to have Stamatis come to our villa and cook us a flavorful meal based on the history and flavors of Corfu! He was so kind, flexible, and so knowledgable! The mixture of food, wine, and music was an amazing end to our visit to Corfu – such a great ambiance he created to serve us really amazing dishes. He was very thoughtful and flexible with dietary needs/restrictions and also special requests. Highly recommend Stamatis if you are in Corfu for your dining pleasure – you won’t forget it!!!!

  4. Wow, what a lovely, enriching experience with food and wine that tastes divine. Stamatis smiled, exuded knowledge and kept us fed and watered throughout the meal and wine tasting. Having no personal knowledge of wine we were both welcomed to express our thoughts and flavors and these were let with more enthusiasm. At no point did we feel that Stamatis did not welcome our views. A great meal, wine tasting, knowledgeable experience which we will be recommending to any of our friends that head to Corfu. The offer is still there if you’d like to cater our wedding….!! Haha. Andy & Emma.
