The party was held to celebrate Greek National Day (March 25th) at Olive's flagship outlet which sits between Sukhumvit sois 33 and 35.  Olive started out in Bangkok around 10 years ago, and now has seven branches strategically located around the city.

Greek wines were always hard to find in Thailand until fin started importing them three years ago.  The range now includes wines from Mount Athos and Mount Pangeon and includes Retsinas, Kali GI Whites, Roses and Reds, and Agathon and Areti Reds.
