WHAT OUR VISITORS SAY ABOUT "CRESSIDA" CRETE OLIVE OIL TASTING
Really a very nice experience! Very knowledgeable guide, lots of wine to taste, just a 30 minutes taxi ride from Heraklion, one of our best wine tasting experiences (and we have had MANY) ever. We also found some of their wines back in the US!

We had a wine and olive oil testing. It was very interesting especially olive oil testing, because it was something new for us.
I recommend this Winery and Femina white wine.

We went for the wine and olive oil tasting. The staff is of really lovely people that are very knowledgeable about their wines. The highlight was definitely the olive oil tasting, as the lady that presented the oils was so great at her job and really helped us understand the complexities of olive oil.

A few words about the quality
of Olive Oil from Crete
Olive oil is a liquid fat obtained from olives, a traditional tree crop of the Mediterranean Basin, produced by pressing whole olives and extracting the oil. Cretan Olive oil is crafted from age-old olives on Crete island. Extra virgin olive oil is an excellent product with enormous nutritional value. The terroir of Crete is considered ideal for producing high quality olive oil.
