About the event

Greeks believe that it's not New Year yet unless you cut the New Year's cake - Vasilopita, a cake with a coin hidden in one of the pieces. The one who's lucky to find the coin will get a special gift from Olivity!

As a first wine & dine event of the year we wanted to start off with a special tradition, and considering that Vasilopita is indigenous to Greece and Cyprus we'll do a 6-course Greek and Cyrpus wine and dine pairing before we cut the famous cake.

So 6 unique wines from Greece & Cyrpus from different grapes, different regions and made using different techniques paired with a 6 course brunch on a Sunday afternoon.

About the Vasilopita tradition:

Vasilopita or Saint Basil's Pie or New Year's Cake is a cake cut in Greece and Cyprus on New Year's Eve. A coin is hidden inside the cake, and the person who cuts the cake appoints each piece to one of the guests. The person who finds the "flourí" a.k.a. the lucky coin in their piece, will have a lucky year ahead -- also, he/she will get a present from Olivity. 

Even though Vasilopita is meant to be cut right after the clock strikes 12 on New Year's Eve, the fun stretches throughout the following weeks, sometimes well into Spring.
