Traditional Harvest Day in Creta Maris Beach Resort!

(TRAVPR.COM) GREECE - September 6th, 2016 - On Friday August 26th, a “Traditional Harvest” day was held in Creta Maris Beach Resort. This year, the action was part of the events organized by the resort, in the context of its participation in the project “FUTOURIS e.V.: Connecting sustainable Winegrowing with the Hospitality services on Crete | 2016-17”.

The aim of the action was to introduce the traditional Cretan rural work to the guests, while also highlighting in the best possible way the island’s long tradition in grape growing and winemaking. The ritual began by collecting the grapes from the vineyard (harvest), and transfer them in a traditional way, with the donkey, on the winepress for the production of grape must, and then distillation of the grapes in order to produce raki as well as grape must jelly. All actions were followed by music, dancing, and delicacies, features of the Cretan hospitality.

The participation of the guests in the harvest and pressing of the grapes was noteworthy, giving them a valuable experience of the Cretan lifestyle, culture and traditions.
