CHRISTENING IN METSOVO
This summer we were given the opportunity to live such a unique experience that we want nothing more than to share it with you!
We gathered in the picturesque Metsovo, right in the heart of Greek tradition, in a settlement full of traditional features, to organize the christening of Nikolaos.
This christening took place in the Holy Church of Saint George in the verdant, heavenly Averopheion Garden, a garden of incomparable beauty, admired by all the visitors.
The quests had the opportunity to taste refreshing homemade lemonade, dried fruits and traditional delicacies while enjoying the sunny, cool summer day during the sacrament in the churchyard.
The dinner for Nikolaos’ christening took place at Katogi Averof, which is a unique winery, a gem on the eastern outskirts of Metsovo, also known for being the one that bottled the first wines, thus leading to the expansion of Greek varieties and their marriage with foreign ones.
The christening of Nikolaos was surrounded by original handmade creations such as the baptism package, the testimonies that were distributed to all the guests in the church and the coasters that were the main souvenirs of the christening.
Imposing, wooden, monastic tables, decorated with a garland of green leaves, were placed in the courtyard of the winery,and although the morning’s sunny day turned into a rainy afternoon, the guests still tasted the fresh traditional dishes and fine wines. All the guests had also a variety of sweet treats to choose from which were placed on a specially designed buffet.
Various activities were organized for the people invited in Nikolaos’ christening, such as a guided tour of the winery and they were even given the opportunity to get to know both its history and its facilities as well as its fine wines.
Special surprises and interesting activities awaited the little guests who enjoyed themselves greatly, letting their parents relax and feel carefree on this special day of Nikolaos’ christening.
