Rethymno: Cretan herbs and wine tasting with lunch
Rithyland - Gastronomy Tours | Rethymno Crete


Our route starts from Rethymno. We cross the lush, green landscapes and arrive at our first destination, the traditional village of Agouseliana.

A variety of Cretan herbs grows on its slopes. Cretan Aroma welcomes us and we discover the taste and smells of Cretan herbs and their healing properties.

In this magical and peaceful environment, we enjoy a relaxing coffee before continuing our journey.



Our next stop is the village of Kali Sykia, home of the Zouberakis family winery.

The producer gives us a tour, we discuss with him, and of course, taste their excellent wines. This winery is a very special stop along our unforgettable journey.




Our route ends in the picturesque village of Armenoi where an authentic, Cretan meal is expecting us with traditional desserts, wine, raki and the famous Cretan hospitality. 

This is an excursion full of flavours and aromas. An experience you will never forget.
