Wine Exploration

"Cretan wine" is without doubt one of the most popular in Greece. If you consider that the largest percentage of wineries, where wine is produced and bottled, is in the wider Heraklion area, then it is a great idea to follow the Wine Trails and enjoy exploring various wines.

In order to visit the many open to the public wineries, one has to start in Heraklion city and follow two trails. The eastern trail includes Archanes vineyards, where the red PDO Archanes wines are produced, and the Peza vineyards, where the white and red PDO Peza wines are produced.

The western trail goes through the Dafnes vineyards, where the red dry as well as the sweet white PDO Dafnes wines are produced.
