Description

The Boutaris winery in Crete is located on the outskirts of the village of Skalani on the Phantaxometoho estate. Located just 8 km from Heraklion city center and 4 km from the archaeological site of Knossos, it is the jewel of the Archanes viticultural zone.
The Phantaxometoho estate, known as “the priory of phantoms,” owes its name to the efforts of its previous owner to protect it from pirate raids by spreading rumors that ghosts haunt the estate.
The winery is open to the public and has a complete range of services for visitors.

ACTIVITY DESCRIPTION
Treasures of Crete is your ultimate experience to dive into the History, Culture, and Wine Legacy of Boutari Estate. Genuine Experience by Rami Masount, in collaboration with our Winery, has created a tailor-made ode around the Gastronomy and Magnificence of Crete for our visitors. You will enjoy a private tour, guided by our Certified Sommelier, and explore the secrets behind the story of our Winery, and the Wine Making process as you walk around our Vineyards, our Production area, and our cellar, as we shift you to a different reality.

Once you have enjoyed your walk around the winery you will be seated in a private spot that we have set and decorated exclusively for our guests. We begin with an exclusive Extra Virgin Olive Oil Tasting, which will unlock a whole new world for you, discover the health benefits of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, the history of Olive Oil Making, and a guide on how to pair Olive Oil according to your dish!

Following your tour will enjoy our detailed Local Wine Tasting with the guidance of Genuine Experience’s Certified Sommelier and indulge your senses as you discover indigenous varieties of Crete, and how international varieties evolve in Crete’s terroir!

Finally, your experience will be topped by pairing wines you have tasted with dishes of Authentic Cretan Cuisine, which will be the capstone of your Cultural and Gastronomical Experience with us.
