The Wine Lovers' Tour is the best way to get an in depth understanding of the wines of western Crete.

Chania Wine Tours's wine expert will demonstrate how to properly taste wine to get the most out of each glass.
Next we head to oldest olive tree in the world. The olive tree is predicted to be 3000 years old. After a photo-op and a visit to the olive oil museum, we'll travel to Anoskeli Winery and Olive Oil Mill. Depending on the time of year, you may see olive oil and/or wine production. Privately tour the nearby vineyards with our sommelier or grapegrower and learn about the history of Cretan viticulture. Taste 5 more wines with an ample snack of cheese, salami, vegetables, and bread with Anoskeli extra virgin olive oil.
