IN THE CENTER OF FIRA
A BEAUTIFUL GARDEN
Assyrtico Wine Restaurant Café opened its doors in 2011 on the first floor of the Samourka building in the center of Fira, a historic mansion of the 20th century, which was renovated during the ‘60s. In the old days, the selection of grapes of the Koutsogiannopoulos family took place in the back garden (Mr Koutsogiannopoulos was the father of the current owner, Mrs. Samourka). We have been inspired by the history of the place and we combined it with our deep knowledge around wine.
Thus, from the very first moment, we set wine at the center of our philosophy- as the name Assyrtico suggests (wordplay with Assyrtiko -the main local grape variety). In 2016 we moved to this exact green yard of the building. On the first floor is now based Koukoumavlos restaurant, our gourmet “sister restaurant” (www.koukoumavlos.com).
