The Natural Wine Cellar

Starting from just a few shelves of wine, we transformed a mid-century Greek cottage into a cellar that features a rotating selection of rare, low-production wines from Western Europe and Georgia.

Our cellar made its mark when we opened our doors in 2021 and became the first 100% natural wine bar in Greece.

Every spring we reinvent (and expand!) the room, exclusively telling the stories of winemakers who are dedicated to the ancient technique of low-intervention winemaking. Many of these winemakers in Greece have kept alive indigenous grape varieties that were verging on extinction. Every bottle is a wellspring of knowledge. We do our best to tell stories of the farmers, the daughters who wade in wine up to their knees and then stomp all of it out, toes dripping wet with juice.  

There is no wine list at éla! It infuriates the few and relieves the rest. No posturing, pretending, searching for something familiar. No meandering through the same old wines, the steady ones, the sips that you can taste before the bottle even arrives at your table. Every single person who enters éla! must be taken hand-in-heart, by them, into the cottage, our little house packed with wines.

In the spring, you can find us sitting out our porch watching the garden grow and opening bottles for ourselves. You won’t be able to see us from the road but anyone Is welcome to swing by and buy a bottle for the road :)
