Wine & Dine like a Local

Gastronomic tourism is getting more and more fans who choose to combine their trip with food and wine tasting. Where the Mediterranean diet finds its most genuine representative, the acquaintance with the Cretan province and the delicious treasures produced here becomes a memorable experience. Specialized agencies give you the opportunity of exceptional experiences, with a common ground of fine wine and excellent products made in the Cretan land [raki, cheese, honey, olive oil, barley cookies, etc.]. Whether with friends or individually, you can meet local olive growers & winemakers, visit olive mills, vineyards, cauldrons, and wineries, and learn the secrets of the whole production process of local products.

You can also choose individual packages for Prive Indigenous Wine Tasting and Food Pairing, at your place, with a personal oenologist, who will introduce you to the secrets of fine wine and during which you will have the opportunity to try different Cretan labels and traditional dishes. If you want a special day, choose a delicious picnic in the vineyards, lasting 4 hours, and try wine with Cretan delicacies in a magnificent landscape. The experience of tasting and wine tasting is also offered onboard, in a private boat with a capacity of up to 8 people, with your personal sommelier and the endless blue surrounding you!

The delicious trip is also offered in the luxurious restaurant of Pela Mare Hotel, where every day a rich menu of traditional flavors is prepared, which guests can enjoy accompanied by fine Cretan wines!

Ask the reception staff to inform you about all the programs provided and to help you reserve your tickets.
