Olive Oil & Wine - Private Tour, a fascinating private tour through the Cretan countryside in order to learn more about island's farming and culinary trails with an intimate perspective of today’s Crete. 

Olive oil is vital to the local economy as well as the backbone of the Mediterranean diet. 

We will visit an estate producing olive oil, a local winery and a rustic family run eatery.

Our first stop is at Biolea Astrikas Estate, a family-owned company specializing in the artisan production of organic olive oil using millstones and presses, a completely traditional way of organic olive oil production. Olive oil produced with millstones and presses retains maximum nutritive benefits, and is distinguished by its mild, sweet taste. Biolea produces olive oil only from olive trees that they own, care for, and harvest themselves. We will be guided around their premises and have an olive-oil tasting, accompanied by the owners.

It is time to taste some wine. Continuing our exploration through a verdant landscape with orange and olive groves, we will visit a quaint winery, the realization of a lifelong dream of a Greek-American owner, who was born and raised in this small village. Escorted by an expert, you will be navigate around the grounds and then taste their excellent bio wines. 

Driving along the foothills of the White Mountains, we will enjoy a delicious Cretan meal, a family run tavern that enjoys a great setting before the return journey to your hotel in the late afternoon.
