The traditional wine-making process in Crete has profound origins. From the early age of Minoans to the present day, vine-harvesting is an exceptional celebration. This tour is based on our childhood memories. We will bring you closer to the wine culture in Crete as you take part in the wine-making process using the traditional local method.
The tour begins at our family vineyard as we harvest different varieties of the local grapes that include; ‘Romeiko,' ‘Vidiano,' ‘Vilana,' ‘Kotsifali’ and ‘Mantilari.' You will enjoy this special festival as we sing and dance original Cretan songs. Our voices echo through the White Mountains as the harvesting continues.
Afterwards, we head to our home. It is a cultural Cretan house, built in the early 19th century. We will walk you through the secret rooms that presents Crete through the centuries and share with you the Cretan traditions as you enjoy the Cretan hospitality. With the treadle all set, the wine-making procedure starts, we smash the grape with our feet. The first grape juice appears as we smash harder and harder. When the smashing is over the grapes, remain in the juice for it to get the rose or mid red color.
After all the hard work the feast begins, as we delight in traditional Cretan delicacies paired with fine wine.
