The region of Heraklion is the largest wine region of Crete where the majority of wineries are situated. On this private and exclusive tour, dive into the world of Crete’s indigenous grapes, explore some of the region’s most beautiful scenery and vineyards, lightly trek to ancient wine presses, hidden Byzantine churches and taste some of the best wines that Crete has to offer.

Explore two authentic Cretan wineries, their vineyards and cellars while learning their stories. Finally, indulge in a full wine and Cretan lunch pairing at a winery, one of the healthiest cuisines of the Mediterranean.
