Brief Description

Drive deep into the beautiful Cretan countryside, to the traditional village of Steironas. Take a deep breath here, and enjoy the fresh mountain air as you take in the majestic view – you are 550 meters above sea level. Steironas is a tiny village with traditional stone buildings arranged amphitheatrically, with a view toward the mountains. Here we’ll visit a botanical parterre which is home to various aromatic and medicinal herbs from the mountains of Crete.

 Wine has been made in Crete since the Minoans, and we’ll have a chance to literally put our lips to the deep cup of traditional Cretan winemaking when we visit a raki distiller and sample traditional raki directly from the barrels of Mr Vasilli’s cellar! We’ll learn about wine production and bottling, followed by  Cretan meze with pure Cretan olive oil and other local products, and traditional Cretan dancers will perform for us during our meal! This is a deep, satisfying draught of the countryside of Crete. Enjoy!
