The tour starts by visiting an innovative olive mill, where all production steps and details are described thoroughly by local experts. You will learn about the extra Cretan Virgin Olive Oil, which is known worldwide. This olive mill produces an exceptional product beyond the known quality standards. The guided tour at the facilities near Kolymvari starts from an olive grove with the excellent olive trees of “Koroneiki” variety.

The last part is inside the bottling unit. You can taste more than three different extra virgin olive oils of varying quality category or certification. Little secrets on storage, best use and healthy attributes can be discussed, as well.

The journey continues with a beautiful drive in nature till the next stop at the local winery. You will learn about the wine varieties of the traditional family winery, established in 1998, with specialized knowledge on winemaking and fresh ideas for modern processes of farming and wine production. Their wine portfolio consists of white wines made from Soultanine, Malagouzia, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc and red wines from Cabernet, Syrah, Merlot, Grenache Rouge, Kotsifali, Sangiovese, Refosco, Nebbiolo and Tempranillo. You will have the opportunity to taste five different wines with all the typical characteristics for every variety they belong to. Also, they give these wines a specific twist which will reveal the winery’s distinctiveness. This is achieved because the location of the vineyards combines medium altitude with sea proximity. After this unique wine experience, you will leave Kolymmbari behind and move on to a different area.

The next stop will be at the brewhouse in Zounaki village, where the creation of full-flavoured, pure beers without preservatives or additives is made. An experienced guide will inform you of the raw materials used in brewing. Learn every stage of the brewing process through which you can experience the rich aromas and different malts.

This tour finishes with the beer tasting part straight from the tanks. Learn about the origin of flavours found in different beer styles and taste four fresh beer samples accompanied by Cretan breadsticks.
