EXPLORING THE GREEK ISLES
A PortoVino with a View
Adventure

By Marisa Hammerbeck, co-owner of PortoVino

Marisa Hammerbeck, co-owner of PortoVino, shares her recent PortoVino-with-a-View adventures in Crete and Cycladic Greek Islands with Big Blend Radio.

Ahhh the Greek Isles….

My husband Gunnar and I were fortunate enough to take my PortoVino(s), and our family to a few of the Cycladic Greek Islands this summer and it did not disappoint. The iconic white washed buildings with royal blue trim to go along with the crystal blue/green shades of the Aegean Sea paired perfectly with the PortoVino With A View –  and boy did it have a view!  As we traveled from the various islands, we switched up the PortoVinos and the beverages that flowed out of them.  

Here is a little snippet of our itinerary, along with some PortoVino with a view photos.

Mykonos was a pretty little island with windmills and meandering streets along the water known as little Venice.  It is known as the party island and it did not disappoint. 


Paros is known for its fine white marble and has a beautiful town along a harbor with plenty of restaurants to choose from.  The colorful pinks, blues and yellows accent the white washed buildings, and there are some great beaches for windsurfing.


Naxos is the largest of the Cycladic islands but still has all the charm.  The main town is defined by an imposing Venetian castle that sits on the top of the hill of the town while a maze of pedestrian streets meander down to the main street.  It is known for its agriculture and the food at all the eating establishments is tops.


Santorini is breathtaking. Devastated by a volcanic eruption in the 16th century BC, the two main towns are on the top of the cliff which overlooks the Aegean Sea.


Finally, although not in the Cycladic Island Group, we had to go to Crete. It is the birthplace of Western Civilization and is marked with gorgeous beaches (some even have pink sand) and amazing Gorges.
