A huge exhibition of the best wines Crete has to offer will take place in Chania on April 20th and 21st, 2019.

The Oinokritika Wine Festival 2019 will highlight Crete’s major wine networks as well as smaller wine distributors. In addition, Santorini winemakers will be participating in the event for the first time with their amazing “Assyrtiko” wines.

The organizers are expecting approximately 3,000 participants at the festival, which would be the event’s largest attendance so far.

First organized back in 2007, the Oinokritika Wine Exhibition was the first organization to present products from Cretan wineries in a collaborative effort.

Today, the event carries on with its original mission of informing consumers, winemakers, and distributors about the special wines of Crete, and in searching for the highest-quality wines on the island.

In addition, the 2019 edition of the Oinokritika Wine Festival will feature networking and workshops on Friday, April 19th, and activities for children on Monday the 22nd.

Visitors will have the opportunity to taste a total of three hundred and fifty fine wines from thirty-two Cretan wineries, as well as the new Santorini guest wineries. Live music and other entertainment will also be part of the festival experience.
