The Wine Caravan.

Two women with passion for wine, travel and adventure, meet and their vision takes shape.

We are Leoni and Anna, two women with passion for wine, travel and adventure. Through our page we would like to project our vision and our love for unpretentiously nice food of our place and our aesthetics for life. We enjoy traveling as well as discovering new destinations, cultures of indigenous tribes and their culinary habits. When we’re not running around and finding some free time, then all roads lead to a trip.

Our message is:

“Get off your feet away from the chair, the couch, the desk. Leave the cell phone, tablet, computer and go outside. See the colors of nature. Breathe fresh air. Lead an amazing life! Make this passage through life, the most exciting adventure.”

This is the journey for us. This is Caravin. This is life.

What does Caravin mean?

The Wine Caravan.

Wine and Travel.

With a name that is half caravan and half wine (caravan + vin) it is no wonder that from the moment you cross its threshold it makes you travel to destinations where wine becomes the reason to discover them.

Wine and travel will always be the reason to make appointments again and again at Caravin.

After all, this is the reason why Caravin was born in Thisio.

Two words so different, but yet tightly intertwined with each other, moving on similar paths through time.

Images, tastes, smells, people, cultures, history.

It’s the wine.

It’s the Journey.

It’s CaraVin.

How did we start?

Caravin was born in the summer of 2018 in the heart of Athens, Thisio. In a quiet street, at 11 Akamados street, just a few meters from the bustling and highly touristic street of Herakleidon and Dionysiou Aeropagitou in Thisio and that’s what matters. Hordes of tourists don’t pass through here. This is where travelers come, those who explore our city looking for quality. Word of mouth works perfectly here and not only for foreigners, but also for our fellow citizens who really love Athens.

A different caravan, happy, noisy, full of colors and aromas. 

The birth of Caravin started from the need for a change!

Anna officially took the decision to sell the pharmacy she had been running for 18 years, and Leoni decided that after 15 years as a lawyer and scientific associate at the Hellenic Parliament and the Ministry of Justice, a professional cycle was completed.

It was the pivotal moment when the need for change met the thirst for creativity and new adventures. This is how the paths of Anna and Leoni have met.

Many events, tastings, parties, trips, flights, endless hours of running followed. In one year of operation, the corona virus found us and temporarily froze all our dreams. We never gave up.

We continued our trips, redefined our goals, followed all health protocols, reunited with our clients and friends.

We created a place like our home. A place that can accommodate all friends and acquaintances who share the same passion for travel, wine, and good conversations. A space that is a note of joy and inspiration for everyone out there who promised himself a life full of adventure and diversity.

The space

Caravin’s space is warm and simple at the same time. The lighting is thought out, and every element of the store exudes the air and sophistication of a modern European country. Everything else, from the tables and comfortable seats to the elements of the elegant boho style decoration and colors, are matching and giving the feeling of comfort and intimacy to its guests. Wine is at the forefront, for this reason and a recess of the wall has been dressed with beautiful mosaics full of wines (one of the most photographed parts of the shop), while the collection of old suitcases above the bar turns wanderlust from word to image. 

All this could not be accomplished without the undivided contribution of our interior designer Nikolas Karathanasis.

Caravin is the meeting place for travelers. At every Caravin table, is heard a story from a trip that has been completed or from a trip that is being planned.

Caravin’s dishes couldn’t help but travel. Plates beautifully set and at the same time unpretentious. Dishes that showcase Mediterranean cuisine with an emphasis on the products of small producers from every corner of Greece. 

Our main motto: Sharing the dishes in the middle according to the Greek and Mediterranean custom, so that the customer gets a complete dining experience.

Our new project
