You may not be able to find the 1500 BC vintage of wines in Crete but we do know that you’ll drink, eat and travel well. It’s an island where you can visit the remnants of brilliant civilizations, explore glorious beaches, impressive mountainscapes, fertile valleys and steep gorges, and become part of the island’s rich gastronomic culture.
Crete is the largest island in Greece, and the fifth largest in the Mediterranean. It has many indigenous varieties of wine, both red and white, although the island is largely known for its white wines. Vidiano is the flagship grape and it has rich and balanced, fruit-flavored aromas. On the palate it has a velvety texture with a crispness that makes it ideal for almost any seafood, vegetarian or poultry dish. Fortunately, Cretan cuisine is full of local produce, meats and seafood. A visit to this wonderful island is one that you’ll never forget.
