#StyleloveTravels to Spetses @ the Grey Goose Atelier
I am truly honoured and happy to say that I’m part of a very special family, and that is, the Grey Goose family. It is a love affair actually! The GG team has ‘hugged’ me and my child, theStylelove.com that is, since last year and I’m more than excited to work and communicate their fantastic events and concepts!
This time, our collaboration was even more special! Seven influencers and seven bartenders travelled together to the place that I can call home, Spetses island for the Classic Yacht Regatta, which surprisingly I never miss! To tell you the truth, it’s the best period to visit the island and the reason is simple: the weather is sweet, the day is long, the visitors eclectic and the colours of the sky are as clear as ever! So, yes Grey Goose chooses wisely every June to sponsor this great yacht race! Smiley face!
And so the journey begun, with speedboats as transportation and uplifting spirits from the whole team! Once arrived in Spetses the experience got a lot more exciting. An amazing villa, located in Ntapia was the Grey Goose Atelier where we tasted, drunk and had lots and lots of fun! For two days, private chefs and bartenders took a very good care of us all! We even got to watch a Master Class with Panos Ioannidis chef, in which we learned all the secrets of cooking the perfect risotto! The best part though, was the tasting part. Seriously, we had the most delicious shrimp risotto with caramelised pears and Grey Goose La Poire!
The experience ended with a fantastic challenge-game: To create our unique summer cocktail with the help of a bartender of course! I may have not won the challenge (although our Grape Goose Martine rocked!), but I gained a new bartender friend and I know where I will be drinking my Grey Goose cocktails this summer in the city! Manoli, you’ll be seeing me often @ Odori Vermuteria Di Atene! Sticking my tongue out!
Lastly, I just have to say that during this trip, we got to bond, make new friends and most of all, have fun!
Stay tuned for more GG stories, because the summer just begun!
