On the 18th till the 20th of February we organized the OiNotika wine fair in Herakleion – Crete. Over 3.000 guests visited the winefair and enjoyed the new vintage of the Cretan winemakers. In these three days, the visitors had the chance to participate to mini wine tastings seminars and cooking shows.
