WHY WE LOVE IT
An amazing wine tour in Crete that also doubles as an olive oil excursion!
“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
This wine and olive oil adventure explores two of the most important products of Greek food and Cretan life, olive oil and wine.
The first stop is to a cave that has a panoramic view of the olive groves of western Crete. Learn about the Greek Orthodox faith and discover a hidden school used during the Ottoman occupation. Next stop is a family-owned and operated olive oil mill in the heart of Chania’s countryside. There is a guided tour of the mill and a sampling of three types of organic extra virgin olive oil. To complete the olive oil portion of the tour, the next stop is at the oldest olive tree in the world! You will take pictures and walk through the olive oil museum.
Next stop, nearby, is the first winery. You will enjoy a guided walk through the vineyards and a sampling of five different wines. Your certified sommelier gives an extensive history of Crete's wine as well as a lesson on how to taste wine like a professional. An ample snack accompanies the wine tasting.
At the second winery, and last stop, you will learn about the winemaking process from vine to glass. You will explore the winemaking floor and barrel room and will have the opportunity to taste five different wines of Crete. You will choose your favorite to accompany the grand finale, a delicious four-course traditional meal.
