A small family-owned Winery in Vatolakkos still follows the traditional ways of growing their grapes and producing the wine. The grape fields are taken care of with the respect towards the nature and the grapes are even today picked up with hand work.
The roots of wine production are very deep in Crete. The Cretan soil together with sun and the right temperature creates the unique taste for Cretan wines. Wine has always been an important part of Crete and nowadays the more developed wine producing methods have raised the quality and respect of the Cretan wines among the wine lovers.
Follow up an interesting tour at a winery and learn how they produce their wines. Wine tasting will get you familiar with five different wines and is paired with local Cretan rusks, olive oil and sea salt. Afterwards relax with full meal at the winery area consisting Cretan salad, local pies, stuffed vine leaves, giouvetsi and delicious traditional dessert. Please notice that the menu changes depending on the season to ensure the highest quality.
