Wine is part of the daily life and culture of Crete. It is always served with a meal or dinner and drinking is enjoyed in company as Cretans never drink alone.
They prefer to do it while chatting, laughing and enjoying local food!
Crete boasts a 4000-years-old wine tradition. The oldest vineyard in Europe was found at the area of Kato Zakros and the oldest wine-press, aged over 3500 years, was discovered nearby Archanes.
The island’s long periods of glorious history have always included wine as a product inextricably linked to daily life and participation to viniculture events and wine festivals has been part of a centuries-old tradition that has lived on to our times.
