What better way to start your day than a wine and olive oil brunch tour! We pick you up in Chania and surrounding areas and head far west to the tiny village of Astrikas where we find Biolea Olive Oil Mill.
Biolea is one of the only olive mills in the Mediterranean that produces olive oil with stone mills and a press. We’ll enjoy a extensive tour where you’ll learn everything you never knew you needed to know about olive oil.
After the tour, we’ll sit in the beautiful patio area of Biolea with a view of the gorge, mountains, and ancient villages. It’s here we’ll have a four course brunch menu from many ingredients grown at the estate. Fresh farm eggs (we can go see the chickens, too!), seasonal fruits and vegetables, fresh made pitas and breads, locally sourced meats and dairy items, and of course, lots of Biolea’s Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
We’ve carefully selected wines that will pair with each course featuring the best Cretan wines.
The menu and the wines will change depending on the fruits and vegetables that are in season.
After bruch, we’ll make a stop at the oldest olive tree in the world. With your new knowledge of everything olive oil, you’ll fully understand olive oil history and production.
Duration is 4 hours.

We learned so much from visiting the Biolea farm — who knew there was so much to potentially learn about olive oil production? Our tour was fascinating and informative, and the olive oils are so delicious.
Great factory tour with lots of details about olive oil production. Learned so much about the differences in olive oil quality levels and production methods!
It was the first time we visited an olive farm and we could not have chosen better!
The road to the plant is spectacular, great views!!!
Our experience at Biolea Olive Oil Estate was fantastic. Chloe, daughter of the owner, was friendly and knowledgeable about olive trees, olives, and of course the organic oil production for the family brand.
Our guide was very interesting. The place is a little bit hard to find but it worth it! It’s a beautiful place to visit and the olive oil is very good!
I had a very kind email contact with Chloe and we’ve visited biolea today. We had tour through the fabric, with a lot of information. It was very interesting and Chloe was very friendly! At the end of the tour you had the chance to try the different oils! Really good! We can recommend it!!!
