HERSONISSOS, Greece - Sept. 4, 2019 - PRLog -- On 23rd of August, Creta Maris Beach Resort held a "Traditional Harvest Day" one of the most favorite and most popular among other annual actions the resort organizes. This traditional event, held for 7th consecutive year in the context of the "We do local" activities that the resort organizes as well as its participation in "TUI cares for Crete: First steps towards a Sustainable Food Destination | 2017-2019" program, aims to introduce the traditional Cretan rural work to the guests, while also to highlight the island's long tradition in grape growing and winemaking.

Starting from Creta Maris organic indigenous vineyard, guests and employees had the chance to attend and participate in all traditional Cretan works that have to be done during harvest. The harvest experience began with the collection of the grapes from the vineyard. The grapes were transferred to the winepress in the traditional way – by donkey – for the production of the grape must. Following the distillation process, the "raki" traditional alcoholic drink was produced, as well as the grape must jelly. All actions were followed by music, dancing, and delicacies, features of the Cretan hospitality.

The participation of the guests in the "Traditional Harvest" and pressing of the grapes was noteworthy, giving them a valuable experience of the Cretan lifestyle, culture and traditions.
