Customer Reviews

“I have many friends that are from the island of Crete, and it has always been on my bucket list to go there for vacation. One of the highlights of my vacation was taking this wine tour. Everything about it was amazing! The wine, the food, the expertise of the wine and the area, the charismatic nature of the tour guides/owners. What was also very nice about the owners was how fluent they are in both English and Greek. I highly encourage anyone to do this wine tour if you are visiting Greece. The price is incredible, and the experiences and memories we gained from this will last a lifetime!" Harry, USA

Activity Description

Crete and Greek wine are experiencing a wine renaissance. This full day wine tour is an immersion into this exciting revival!

During this tour you will visit three wineries in Chania region, each with their own unique character. The first winery is family owned and operated; during your visit there your certified sommelier will give an extensive history lesson on the 4,000 year old wine tradition on Crete and how Cretan wine has evolved to what it is today. You will explore the grounds of the winery including a church dedicated to the patron saint of vineyards and will sample five wines, guided by your professional host. 
Driving toward your next stop, you will pass by the oldest olive tree in the world and will stop for some stories and photos. At the second winery, you will walk through the vineyards and learn about the native grape varietals. Wine tasting will continue with five more wines accompanied by an ample traditional snack.
Heading into the valley, you will have the chance to stretch your legs and leisurely walk around a lake before your visit to the third winery, nearby. A tour of the winemaking floor and barrel room will complete your understanding of Cretan wine followed by a wine tasting of 5 more local wines and a four-course traditional meal with unlimited wine, of course!
