Monday: Mone Mone Mezzethopolio

On Monday, we sketched in the center of Neapolis, next to the statue of the Vatikioti. Sandy's lesson focussed on color and there were many colors -- especially blues -- to work on.

In the evening, we walked to Mone Mone for a wine tasting of Greek varietals, sponsored by local Vatistas Winery. Barbara presented an introduction to wine tasting techniques and the vocabulary of the UC Davis Wine Aroma Wheel. We tasted Kydonitsa, Malagoutsia, Rodi and 50/50 Cabernet/Agiorghitiko wines.

After tasting the wine, we continued to enjoy it as we sampled the many meze (small dishes) Mone Mone serves at their tables on the terrace overlooking the water.
