The Gourmet Wine Tour of Heraklion

    What to Expect
    Treat your senses to a full day exploring Crete’s finest wines and olive oils. After morning pickup at your Heraklion hotel, ride in an air-conditioned minivan to the ancient wine-growing regions of Archanes and Peza. Stop at two different historic wineries, where you’ll have a chance to meet winemakers and learn about traditional production methods on a vineyard tour. After learning about the long history of Cretan wine, try some for yourself with a generous, private tasting featuring 15 different wines.

    Next, slick your pallet with the silky texture of some of the world’s finest olive oils at a family-run domain, where Crete’s soil and climate combine to create the ideal growing conditions for the crop. Stroll through the olive groves and learn how the fruit is grown, harvested and pressed to create these exceptional oils.

    For lunch, head to a local restaurant nestled among the vineyards for a delicious, 3-course meal of typical Cretan dishes prepared by a talented chef. Hand-picked wine pairings round out the feast for an unforgettable gourmet day.
