Following Ariadne’s path
( Wine, Spirits & Olive Oil Tasting)
The adventures of Gods and Heroes of Greek Mythology are well known to you all, so let us introduce you to Naxian Mythology :
- Beginning with the King of the 12 Ancient Greek Olympic Gods, Zeus, who grew up in the caves of our mountains, hidden from his father Kronos, by the help of his mother Rea.
- Following by Goddess of fertility Demeter, who blessed Naxos island and made all the valleys and slopes of its mountains flourished.
- Last but not least, we will have the chance to get familiar with the myth of God Dionysus ( God of wine and celebrations ) and his beloved wife, Ariadne, the Cretan Princess, who was abandoned on Naxos island, from Theseus, Prince of Athens.
As the ancient Greeks imitated their Gods by organizing Lucullian (fancy) meals, we also organize for you a full tasting tour with divine flavors and spirits coming from the Naxian land, accompanied by a journey in the Myths of our island’s History.
Naxos used to be one of the biggest trade market in Kyclades during the Antiquity.
One of the main reasons for that was its fertile land, which provide the Naxians with many different goods.
Three of the most important are : Citrus Grapes and Olives.
On this tour you will have the opportunity to see from first hand how these products have been processed through out the years and also to taste unique flavors and spirits.
In a majestic garden full of Citrus and Grapes trees, we are founding our first spot, a family owned Distillery/ Winery, but our journey in flavors couldn’t be completed without our last spot, an old Olive Press.
