Grace Santorini to Launch ‘363’ Champagne Lounge with ‘Vintages & Vistas’ Champagne Celebration
Luxury boutique hotel, Grace Santorini, announces the launch of its destination champagne lounge, ‘363’, and partnership with Dom Pérignon and Moët & Chandon for the 2017 season.
Set to offer one of the world’s best bar views, the new champagne lounge sits 363 metres above sea level overlooking the breath-taking Caldera. Guests visiting Grace Santorini will have the ideal vantage point to witness the dramatic changing hues of the legendary Santorini sunset, facing the awe-inspiring panorama from the vast floating terrace of 363.
For the 2017 season, Grace Santorini will partner with Dom Pérignon and Moët & Chandon to host ‘Vintages & Vistas’, a series of exclusive champagne events. Commencing in June, in collaboration with Mikhail Petrov, Brand Ambassador for Dom Pérignon, Grace Santorini’s Executive Chef, Spyros Agious, will create a Cyclades-inspired menu of canapés to be paired with selected Dom Pérignon and Moët & Chandon labels, including the prestigious Dom Pérignon P2 1998 and Moët & Chandon Grand Vintage Collection 1998. These exclusive tasting events will take place at 363, facing the spellbinding sunset over Santorini’s iconic caldera. This will be followed by a five-course degustation menu in the hotel’s ‘Santoro’ restaurant, perfectly paired with carefully chosen Dom Pérignon vintages. In July, Spyros Agious will welcome Marco Fadiga, Moët & Chandon’s Executive Chef, for a joint collaboration which promises guests a spectacular gourmet experience.

Menus will be available to continue to enjoy from 26th to 31st July
Available throughout the season, Chef Spyros has also devised a menu of light canapés and appetizers for 363, to complement the finest champagnes, cocktails and premium spirits.
Signatures include: ‘bonito fish tataki with wasabi fava and sultana caper sauce’; ‘quail and foie gras pastille, hazelnut and rose chutney’; ‘buffalo burger with smoky Metsovone cheese, white aubergine crisps and miso ketchup’. The extensive wine list features a selection of the finest Greek wines, many of which are from Santorini, including leading whites such as Assyrtiko and Nykteri and a carefully curated selection of iconic wines from around the world.
Inside 363, a feature wall is made of lava rock from Santorini using local architectural techniques, with mirrors behind it to reflect the light. A fully lit honey onyx bar with brass shelves provides a dramatic statement foil to the dark volcanic stone. The bar is furnished with Emperador marble coffee tables, and barstools and armchairs handmade in Greece and upholstered in C & C Milano fabrics. Adorning the walls is a curated collection of modern art from the renowned RARITY GALLERY, the first Greek gallery to exhibit the works of internationally acknowledged contemporary artists.
