A Day at Cretan Herb Farm With a Wine Tour

(1)

What You'll Do

Combine the two most beloved elements of Crete: its food and wine on a unique tour based around an organic Cretan herb farm, along with the opportunity to taste luscious local wine. Taste the fine distinction between the fresh herbs as well as the incredible aromas Cretan wine is known on a very special day just for your private group.

This unconventional tour gets underway with a visit to an organic Cretan herb farm, where you will be introduced to the hundreds of herbs the Cretan land generously offers its locals. A professional agronomist will be there to talk you through the herbs and their uses. You’ll then have a unique, rural experience to harvest mountain tea, along with other herbs to make your very own tea blend.

Following your immersion into the Greek herbs, you’ll head over to the entrance of the striking Samaria Gorge to take in the incredible views it offers – make sure you bring your camera.

Last but not least – the wine! Visit the beloved local winery of Manousakis and pair the local aromatic wine with traditional Greek dishes over an idyllic lunch in the gardens. You’ll find that your meal is farm fresh, and the wine is some of the most sought-after labels on the island, grown in the Manousakis vineyards… a perfect ending to a perfect day outdoors.

Absolutely perfect. The wine was to-die-for and the herb tour was one for the books! The lunch was truly idyllic not only due to its flavor but to its fairy-like setting right in the middle of the winery's gardens! 10/10!
