Peza Wine Roads Tour
A unique experience for the senses combined with genuine Cretan hospitality!
We will collect our guests from their accommodation and head towards the Cretan countryside.
Our first stop is at the Lyrarakis Estate. We will wander through the privately owned vineyards and talk about the viticulture of the vines and the grape harvest. Then, we will go to the Estate’s cellar and talk about the aging process. In the tasting area, we will try 5 different wines, from Crete’s most awarded winery.
We will continue our tour driving through the region of Peza with its numerous vineyards and olive groves. After a short drive we will arrive at the charming village of Choudetsi, where our next stop is the elegant Rhous Winery. Here we will be welcomed by the owners-oenologists who will give our guests a tour of their vineyards and the winery. They will explain the entire process of winemaking from the selection of the grapes and the planting of the vines down to the vinification and the bottling. After a short visit to the cellar, where the wine is stored and aged, we will proceed to the tasting room, where we will taste 5 different wines.
