Wine in Crete

Image
The wine has known around 4000 years of systematic cultivation in Crete! No wonder that the oldest winepress ( 3500  years old)  was found in the region of Vathipetro.
Homer informs us  that, at his time, Cretan wines were renowned throughout the known world.
This tradition, however, would not bear fruit without knowledge and  technology.

Cretan winemakers took recent advancements, but also the consumers preferences, seriously into account. This largely due to the existence of a new generation of winemakers, enologists, viticulturists, etc. who are trying to improve all aspects of Cretan wine with knowledge, vision, and passion. New varieties are being tested, and new aromas and flavors are emerging, presenting the consumer with fine wines, which can satisfy all tastes and needs. Making good use of traditional vine varieties and age - old experience,modern wine producers in Crete have managed to elevate Cretan wine to its rightful position.

The beach of Nea Chora

This place is within walking distance of many hotels and restaurants and is one of the beaches you can swim in near the Venetian Old Harbor.

There are plenty of sunbeds to choose from at quite reasonable daily rates. Behind the promenade are numerous cafe-bars and beach eqiuipment shops. Most of the cafes and restaurants provide service to their own blocks of sunbeds, and of course you can use their facilities.

You will surely enjoy the water there! It is usually calm and very clean and there are markers that prevent you from going too far. You can see fish on the bottom, and is a great relief from Chania's hot summer weather!
