CRETAN TRADITIONAL WINE MAKING
Live a unique experience and make wine in the “old-fashioned” way, in a traditional house in Kissamos, Chania, Crete.
Metohi farmhouse welcomes you to a 90-years old tradition.
Our family has been producing since 1928 different varieties of grapes in their own vineyards, which offered the wine of the year and more!
First we will give you a tour of the farm with the olive groves, the vineyard, the gardens and the orchard, while at the same time you will learn various interesting things about Cretan products, about the history of the family and the area.
Then everything will be ready for a unique experience!
Our grapes will be thrown into the traditional wine press and then all of us together or in groups will start stepping on the grapes until we get as much “must” as we need for the wine of the year!
The pressing of the grapes is a day of celebration.
The wooden table is already laid with the various appetizers, along with the wine of last year’s harvest.
After, you will carry out the entire traditional winemaking process step by step, under the guidance of Giannis and Eleni, who are the family’s fourth generation, continuers of the tradition.
Then we will all have dinner together with traditional Cretan dishes made with the family’s organic products.
