A singular experience for every visitor. History, culture and the magic of wine become one for a memorable visit. Learn about rare local and international grape varieties by walking the over 50 year old vines of Romeiko (the signature grape of western Crete), the Trebbiano and discover the model Cabernet Sauvignon block. Next you will walk through time and marvel at the early olive oil mill factory where it housed the agricultural monastery’s museum. The highlight of the visit will take place in a sandstone vaulted cellar built in 1613 with a tutored tasting of a selection of the monastery- estate wines with local delicacies. Wine tasting is not the only experience at hand as you will be able to savour extra virgin olive oil from the centenarian old olive groves of the Monastery.
