Wine. Sun. Festival.

Have we got your attention yet?

Greece may not be the first country to spring to mind when we mention vineyards, but Rethymnon Wine Festival is aiming to change that.

The festival will showcase Cretan culture with music, dance and food on offer. Of course, the star of the show is the local wine and you’ll find plenty of it to keep you going (or knock you out) for the week, should you so wish.
