Taste the flavors of thousand-year-old traditions of authentic Crete


The first references of wine and olive oil in Crete date back to 5000BC during the Minoan civilization. 7000 years later, Cretans produce wine, beer and olive oil on the same land, with the only changes the enhancement of production through technology and the optimization of crops.
In this tour we will visit a winery, a beer and an olive oil factory. All three have high standards of production, marrying the old traditions with modern technology and processing. In each location we will spend around one hour touring the facilities and tasting.
For a little bit extra we can eat in a local restaurant, visit a monastery, Maleme airfield and the WW2 military cemetery.
