Description

Today you will travel through wonderful nature’s landscapes. Up to the mountains of Kydonia and Kissamos region, you will learn about wine varieties of the traditional family winery, established in 1993, with specialized knowledge on winemaking and fresh ideas for modern processes of farming and wine production. You will sit between the olive trees, smelling the blossoms, diving deep into nature’s miracle, tasting awarded local ‘’Vidiano’’, ‘’Muscat of Spinas’’, and some international varieties like ‘’Grenache Rouge’’, ‘’Syrah’’, ‘’Mouverde’’, that take a special taste because of the local Terroir.

An incredible taste stays on our palate while you’re leaving the winery, heading through an extraordinary path to traditional Cretan villages. In the wintertime, you smell the humid lands and the air whispering the winter’s songs, but in the summertime, you enjoy watching the blooming vegetation and hearing the birds singing. Then you will visit an old village and the museum of the oldest olive tree in the world whose age is estimated at 3000 years old. The miracle of nature stands proud in front of us and its deep roots hold it through the ages.

This is a day full of wine tasting, different expressions of those noble grapes, and delicious food tasting. You will continue your journey heading to a beautiful winery in Kissamos region. You will taste a special local blended white wine with ‘’Vilana’’, ‘’Vidiano’’ and ‘’Assirtiko’’ varieties and other delicious wines. Also, you will visit the olive oil factory that the family possesses and learn about the extra virgin olive oil production. The wine tasting accompanied with extra virgin olive oil and local pure products is a combination that your palate will never forget. Now you will see the Cretan way to say goodbye, drinking the awarded ‘’Tsikoudia’’.
