The action took place on Friday and was part of the events organized by the resort within the context of its participation in the project “FUTOURIS e.V.: Connecting sustainable Winegrowing with the Hospitality services on Crete | 2016-17”.
During the action, the resort highlighted the island’s long tradition in grape growing and winemaking.
The event began with the collection of grapes from the vineyard (harvest) and their transfer in a traditional way — by donkey — to the winepress for the production of grape must. This was followed by the distillation of the grapes in order to produce raki as well as grape must jelly.
All actions were followed by all features of Cretan hospitality that includes music, dancing and the consumption of delicacies.
“The participation of the guests in the harvest and pressing of the grapes was noteworthy, giving them a valuable experience of the Cretan lifestyle, culture and traditions”, Creta Maris said in an announcement.
