What you'll do

Would you like to live a day like a traditional Cretan farmer? If yes, then look no further! Your day with me would start with a tour to Anemospilia, an area on the Yiouchtas Mountain. From there you will be able to see a breathtaking view of our fields and the city of Heraklion. You will learn of our methods of cultivating table grapes and all the different varieties of grapes we have. After that we will jump right into the action! You will engage in different activities on the fields that are undertaken during the period of your visit. You will learn of all the techniques we use in the cultivation and growing of the plants! The "duties" you would have to engage with would for example be binding the vines, cutting the grapes, and many more! Rest assure that after this you will have a deeper understanding of all the aspects of this amazing product! Your experience will finish with a visit to my family's traditional cottage house which is located right near the fields. There you will experience true hospitality by tasting different Cretan treats!

Popi

Hello! My name is Popi! I am a member of a family of producers, located in the traditional village of Archanes in Crete! We have been in the production of table grapes for many generations. It all started in the 1920s with the first fields. All we knew back then was that we love the product. This love has formed the foundation to how we have expanded nowadays. This knowledge, passing from generation to generation, has made me an expert on growing table grapes! What I would like to offer to you is a Cretan traditional experience with one of the most famous agricultural products of Greece, table grapes!
