Giving Children Clean Water

18% of Greece’s territory has been highlighted as nitrate pollution risk zones due to run-off contaminants from industrial and agricultural uses that end up in tap water.

Through the project “aQua4all” we are financing the installation and maintenance of clean, drinking water treatment systems in all homes of ‘SOS Children’s Villages’. The sole purpose of this project is to provide clean, fresh, potable, and hydrogen-rich water to children living in the SOS Children’s Villages in Greece.

  • Installation of 42 water treatment systems at the point of use (POU).
  • 150 bath water treatment systems, in Athens, Thessaloniki, Thrace, and Crete.
  • Maintenance of the water treatment systems for the next two years.
  • Human resources, technician expenses, parts replacement costs.

SOS Children’s Villages is an international non-governmental organization active in 136 countries and territories around the world. It has been founded by Hermann Gmeiner in Tyrol, Austria, in 1949. With the generous support of donors, child sponsors, partners, and friends SOS Children’s Villages are helping hundreds of thousands of children each year through alternative care, family strengthening, schools, health centers, and other community-based work.

In Greece SOS Children’s Villages has been operating since 1975 and currently operates 4 SOS Children’s Villages, 2 Youth Houses, 2 SOS Babies Homes, Social Centers, and 6 Learning and Education Centers.

UNTIL TODAY THEY HAVE SUCCESSFULLY SUPPORTED 13,040 PARENTS AND 28,012 CHILDREN.
CLEAN, DRINKING WATER TREATMENT SYSTEMS ARE NEEDED IN ALL 22 HOMES OF SOS CHILDREN’S VILLAGES IN GREECE.

Wines of Crete Documentary

Born and raised on the island, I always had a passion for culture, history, and the traditions of Crete. But what’s a passion if it’s not shared? I wanted to share a piece of Crete with you, that is why I embarked on this journey of documentary film making.

I went to Crete this summer, under very difficult travel conditions and interviewed 11 winemakers, discovered fascinating grape varieties, tasted mouthwatering wines and now creating a documentary for the wine lovers in the U.S and Australia. I have already invested $13,700 and now I am looking for help raising funds for the post production editing and film festivals submission fees.

Support Margo Wine Routes

Ourania “Margo” Margomenou had an epiphany: her life’s path should be devoted in bringing together the wine adventurists, the travelers with a knack for authentic experiences, closer to the people who cultivate and “vini cultivate” the Greek earth.

In order to create a bottle of good wine, one must start with good soil – same ingredient for ‘planting’ the idea to create the wine routes: Her extensive journey in the wine world (rich bedding) along with the urge to explore, discover and analyze the beginnings of things (roots). Add the need to communicate and interact with like-minded people and share the love of quality wine and food, (blossoming branches): Margo wine routes travel agency was created.

The name “wine routes” has a double meaning: the word “routes” has the same pronunciation with the word “roots”. A journey to our roots, how wine routes brings us closer to our roots (through history). Finding the way to combine these two was essentially the beginning of Margo wine routes.

Support Greek Wine Club & Receive Greek Wine

Greek wine and wine making is as ancient as the columns that line the Parthenon. Archaeologists have uncovered wine making artifacts from Greece that date as far back as 1600 BC, as the area played an enormous role in wine trade. We can even credit the Greeks with establishing an appellation system to ensure quality and place of origin.

Today’s Greek winemakers, with a nod to antiquity, are working to bring Greek wine back into vogue. Updated wine making technology blended with the nation’s 300 indigenous grape varieties (some of them ancient) has done much to elevate the modern-day perception of Greek viticulture. The Greek climate is also a winning combination: ample sun, minimal rainfall and abundant poor soil set the stage for some serious grape growing.

Greek wine appears to have it all – history, climate and uniqueness. And now it has one more thing: delivery to your door! Browse the collection >
