Oinoscent Wine List

About Oinoscent

Located only five minutes from Syntagma Square, this place has been an oasis for wine lovers for more than a decade. Oinoscent was founded by Danis Agapitos and his brother Agis, and they have worked together with the two-time winner of Best Sommelier of Greece, Aris Sklavenitis, who nowadays also is a co-owner. This is a place with very positive energy, knowledgeable staff and, of course, a wide variety of wines from all over the world. Quite recently they also decided to expand next door, to be able to add an even bigger selection of carefully crafted dishes to their menu.

About the Oinoscent Wine List

Oinoscent’s wine list is continually changing and evolving and consists of around 50 wines by the glass, a few craft beers and a couple of wine cocktails. In the basement, you will find the cellar where they keep their “goodies”, with more than 1,000 labels from both Greece and the rest of the world.

(Aris Sklavenitis, Head Sommelier and co-owner of Oinoscent, is also one of Star Wine List's ambassadors in Athens, Editor's note)

More recommendations

  • My favourite wine bar in Athens, which has an expertly chosen list from around Europe, as well as the most exciting wines from across Greece. Situated on a grimy street behind Syntagma Square, Aris Sklavenitis and his enthusiastic team of sommeliers love to unearth old vintages or exciting new producers, so I always make it one of my first stops whenever I'm in town.
