Mrs. Vasiliki Karounou, Ambelonas' owner and cook, convinced that an authentic traditional wine needs to be combined with authentic foods, undertook a search of forgotten flavours, explored historical sources and by experimenting with local ingredients has resulted and published a cookbook with traditional local recipes that brings back the cooking secrets and flavors of previous generations on the island and served at Ambelonas’ restaurant.

Ambelonas Corfu offers food from pure local ingredients - dishes of traditional and fusion flavors; delivers workshops in authentic traditional Corfiot cooking; hosts tasting tours of the wine produced by our family along with local quality produce and various entertainment and artistic events.

Ambelonas is designed and implemented with love and respect of natural setting and preserving environment. We follow water and energy saving policies, most materials used are biodegradable and recycled. Ambelonas is a member of Greek “Ecotourism” organization.


We use many fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers grown in our estate or by local producers. Proximity is our major criterion in selecting our suppliers for various goods. We are members of the “Slow food” movement.
