Full description
Be collected from your accommodation at 9:00 AM and head towards the villages and mountainous of Naxos. Be surprised by the island's size and diversity. Along the way, your guide will tell you all about the history and the people of this island.  After a 30min ride to your destination deep in mainland Naxos, you will arrive at a small cheese farm. The lovely owners will be waiting to welcome you. You can taste their homemade cheese (arseniko) and house wine. Take the opportunity to participate in the entire cheese-making process. Before leaving, taste another freshly made cheese (mizithra), still hot from the cauldron.  Continue your tour and head to a small and beautiful vineyard located in a village close to Naxos Town. The owner will give you a tour of the vineyard and explain everything about indigenous varieties and modern and traditional methods of wine production in Greece and the Aegean islands. Then, sit at the patio overlooking the vineyard for a delicious wine tasting experience. This will be accompanied by more cheese, this time graviera, the other famous Naxian cheese. Return to your accommodation by approximately 2:30 PM.
