A few words about Kissamos Wine…

The traditionally produced wine in the region of Kissamos  is unique.  it is said that the emperors from  Byzantine and ancient Roman times sent specially designed ships to transport wine and oil to their palaces. Very important references to Kissamos and its wines are found in Dioscurides’ books written around 100 AD.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And six years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
