DESCRIPTION

Is this a honeymoon or is this a wine tour? A visit to Greece is not complete without a visit to its islands. Both islands of Crete and Santorini are ideal honeymoon destinations but they are also paradise for wine lovers.

Join Wine Lovers as we take you to the two islands known for their stunning beauty and outstanding wines.

We’ll fly to Crete where our home will be in the capital city of Heraklion. Crete has the legacy of the Minoan civilization and according to Greek Mythology is also the birthplace of Zeus. Its unique cuisine and remarkably wonderful wines that wine lovers need to experience.

Crete is a huge island, in fact, it is the largest of the Greek Islands and fifth largest of the Mediterranean Sea. Luckily, many of the best Cretan wineries are relatively close our base in Heraklion so travel is minimized. We’ll be sure to visit the Archeological Museum, the world’s finest collection of Minoan art. We’ll also venture to the other side to see the charming “old town” of Chania and visit 2 nearby wineries. After 3 days in Crete, we’ll board a high speed hydrofoil which whisks us to the volcanic island of Santorini.

As for Santorini, words alone can not do justice to the breathtaking views. No matter your age, Santorini makes you feel young again. And its wines especially the Assyrtico will make you swoon. You’ll also be impressed by the unique trellis system used on the island: the vines are shaped in the form of a nest-like circle, low to the ground, to protect from the strong winds. During our stay on this magical island we’ll also have a Greek cooking lesson and a sunset catamaran cruise.

On May 25 when we leave Santorini, you’ll cherish the many memories of your visit to these idyllic islands.
