Knossos Palace – Archeological museum – Winery – Wine tasting

Heraklion Highlights & Winery

Small group tour

If you are in Crete only for one day and you want to visit the main Heraklion sites and then out of the city to a biological Winery for wine tasting then this tour it’s made for you. In this family- run biological winery, which is located at 340 meters above the sea level, you will have the chance of tasting 5 different kinds of local wine. Biological wine is of course made without any chemicals and added sulfates, but let’s learn more about this and local traditions during the tour! What we like more about this experience is that gives us the chance to show our clients our passion about our hometown and nature at the same as we head out of Heraklion to visit the Biological winery and visit the old traditional village of Archanes. We are open of course to customize the tour on your wishes and needs.
