The Island of Wines

Posted on April 27th, 2018 by Despina Sivaropoulou

If wine is your thing, you’ll be glad to know there’s plenty of it in Chania! As well as good food, strong spirits, and stories of the locals, one can enjoy
a plethora of wines and tastes through the many wine tasting events that take place throughout the spring and summer months on the island. Wine has always been seen as the ideal companion of good cuisine and this couldn't be more true than for the Cretans. 

Age-old experience of modern wine producers in Crete have managed to elevate Cretan wine to its rightful position showcasing the tasty variety of grapes, aromas and flavors to even the highest wine connoisseurs. We particularly love the labels of the Dourakis family as well as the equally magnificent wines of the Manousakis Winery who’s vineyards are planted on an elevation of 350 meters situated on the hills just outside the village Vatolakkos. 

Take some time on your trip to Chania to sample the many varieties of local wines and you wont be let down!
