Olive Oil and Wine Tour
A taste of Crete: Olive oil and wine tasting
"Crete, the kingdom of olive oil and wine"
Wine is undoubtedly one of the most memorable parts of the Cretan experience. It’s present at every family gathering, holiday and celebration and has been for thousands of years; the oldest known European winery, from 1700 BC, belongs to our island! Find out all about our legacy from experts who have been producing this beloved nectar for decades at a local winery. A walk through verdant vineyards is the perfect way to be refreshed on a warm summer’s day and take in the different grape strains which are used to produce a range of aromatic labels.
Mandilari, “the king of grapes,” produces an excellent dry red variety, Vidiano is considered to be the “Chardonnay” of Crete and Latiko is the perfect combination between sweet and acidic. Of course, you will get to sip on some of these along with a Greek Meze at a wine tasting after your tour.
