Serendipity in Athens

We had the fortunate opportunity to be crossing paths at the Athens airport last week with David Rosengarten of the erstwhile Food TV show "Taste" and George Athanas and Sophia Perpera of All About Greek Wine. David and I had first met at a series of tastings of Greek and Chilean wines in NY. Turned out we were both going to be in Greece at the same time with a window of opportunity to share Frappe's and Cappuccino Freddo's with George and Sophia. Sphere: Related Content
