Crete Wine and Olive Oil Tour
From US$90.82
Low Price Guarantee
Overview
Treat your senses to the ancient flavors of Crete on a full-day wine tour from Chania. Travel through the mountains of the Kisamos region and traditional Cretan villages to reach two family-run wineries, where you’ll taste award-winning regional wines and stroll through the vineyards. Sample another prized Cretan product at an olive oil factory, and stand before one of the world’s oldest olive trees on this relaxed culinary tour of northwestern Crete.
What to Expect
Today we will travel through wonderful nature’ s landscapes. Up to the mountains of Kisamos region, we will learn about the 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. We will sit between the olive trees, smelling the blossoms, diving deep into the nature’ s miracle, tasting awarded local ‘’Vidiano’’, ‘’Muscat of Spinas’’,  and some international varieties like ‘’Grenache Rouge’’, ‘’Syrah’’,  ‘’Mouverde’’, that earn a special taste because of the local Terroir. 
An incredible taste stays on our palate while we  leave the winery, heading through an extraordinary path to traditional Cretan villages. In the winter time we smell the humid lands and the air whispering the winter’s songs, but in the summer time we enjoy watching the blooming vegetation and hearing the birds singing. Then we will visit an old village and the museum of the oldest olive tree in the world, estimated at 3,5000 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. We continue our journey heading to a beautiful winery in Kisamos region. We will taste a special local blended white wine with ‘’Vilana’’, ‘’Vidiano’’ and ‘’Assirtiko’’ varieties and we will walk through the vineyards into an idyllic landscape. Also we 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 we will see the Cretan way to say goodbye, drinking the awarded ‘’Tsikoudia’’.
