SPILIOS, Carefully selected cretan wineries.
The island of Crete is one of the places in Greece where you will taste “memorable wines” that will offer new thrills to your palate! In Crete you will find the oldest wine-producing area in continuous use on the European continent which dates back to Minoan times. Archaeologists have discovered one of the oldest vineyard in Europe, which dates back to 4000 years ago, unearthed in the area of Kato Zakros (south-eastern Crete) and the oldest wine-press aged over 3500 years was discovered in nearby Archanes.
