Press release from: Creta Maris Beach Resort

On Friday September 8th, 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 operation as a certified member of "We do local" and its participation in the project “TUI Care Foundation, FUTOURIS Project: Crete, First steps towards a sustainable food destination 2017-2019”.
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 its distillation 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 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 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.
