Stop At: Dalabelos Estate, Aggeliana 740 52, Greece

Visiting Dalabelos Farm - (organic farming)

The olive grove – Olive gathering

The harvesting of olives dates back to antiquity. We can observe it depicted on ancient vases, a collective activity carried out by the Cretans during winter with the same method to this day. Since olive trees are very sensitive to cold, rain and damp weather, harvesting is carried out in favourable conditions, on mild sunny winter days.

The olive is the most important agricultural product of the island, its pressing procedure gives out the precious olive oil, which is the basis of Cretan cooking.

The Vineyard - The vine harvest

Grape picking is the most pleasant collective agricultural activity and takes place by the end of summer. This work is accompanied with songs and goes on as a feast that lasts throughout the pressing of grapes and ends by the time when barrels are filled with the grape must - the prize of a whole year's work at the vineyards.

The visitor of Dalabelos is welcome to participate in olive picking and vintage in order to experience the generosity of Cretan land and the bond of the people to their land and its products.

The wine press

All activities associated with grapes are cause for celebration. The clay wine press built in the farm's courtyard is used to press grapes in order to extract the must. The grapes residue is left to ferment and in October it is transferred to the cauldron to be distilled and produce the famous Cretan raki, a "remedy” for body and soul.

The tour in the farm includes treats with refreshments, raki and other estate products and discussion of organic farming.

Duration: 2 hours
