The beverage industry in Greece is having a boom right now. The quality of wine is growing exponentially and craft breweries are popping up in every major city. On the Grapes and Grains Tour visit 2 wineries- Anoskeli Winery and Manousakis Winery; and 2 breweries- Charma Brewery and Lafkas Brewery, as well as some interesting sights along the way.
We start the day with some sparkling wine and freshly squeezed orange juice as we head out of town. We’ll stop by Lafkas Brewery, the newest microbrewery in town. The husband and wife team of Lafkas Brewery will show you around and are available for any questions. Enjoy a beer on their patio before our next stop.
Charma Brewery is located in a small quaint village in the Kolymbari area. Charma Brewery was the first brewery in Chania. Enjoy 4 different beers in their beautiful patio area. Each beer is thoroughly explained by their staff. You will have an opportunity to see inside the fermentation floor as well.
Nearby we find the village of Ano Vouves where you will see the oldest olive tree in the world. Walk through the olive oil museum and see how olive oil was traditionally made. Next we head to Anoskeli Winery and have a private and exclusive walk through their vineyards. Our wine expert will give you in depth information about the history of Cretan wine and viticulture. In the tasting room, you will learn the steps to taste wine like a professional. Taste 5 wines with an ample snack of olives, cucumber, salami, cheese, and tomatoes and taste their organic extra virgin olive oil.
Leaving the rolling hills of Kolymbari, we arrive at Manousakis Winery among the orange groves of the valley. We privately guide you through their new winery while explaining the wine making process. Take pictures in the barrel room before tasting their highly acclaimed wines. After a guided tasting, indulge in a traditional meal with unlimited wine. We return you safely to your hotel at the completion of the tour.
