Our best selling experience provides a great opportunity to meet the locals, be immersed into the authentic Naxian life, make cheese, taste homemade delicacies, go on a vineyard tour, taste delicious local wines and learn about wine making in the island of Dionysus, the God of wine!
In a small cheese farm located deep into mainland Naxos, you’ll get a taste of what locals all over Naxos really do in their everyday lives and how the renowned Naxian cheeses are made.
In this hands-on, off the beaten path experience, you’ll get to meet a lovely couple of farmers, feed the farm animals, observe and help the owners make the “arseniko” signature cheese. You will get to taste all kinds of local goodies made with products taken from the farm, drink the owner’s house wine and exchange life experiences over the family table.
Next up, a beautiful, family-run vineyard, where the owner will welcome you and show you around his dear vines while commenting on terroir, indigenous varieties and traditional vs modern methods of wine making during a 20-30min vineyard tour. Then, the passionate and deeply knowledgeable wine maker will guide you through an intimate tasting of five different local wines, paired with more Naxian cheese, including the famous “graviera”.
