Wine people… At Finikia we meet with Stelios Alexakis, a really special gentleman, as well as his son Lazaros; he’s just back from California. At Dafnes, Nikos Douloufakis drives his 4X4 helicopter and pulls White Rabbits out of his hat, while Vassilis Laderos of Idaia Wines makes wines of all styles that make a splash!

“What if you were roadtripping the whole Crete from one edge to the other, visit all wineries of the network and write about your experience?” Oh, my goodness! I didn’t even think about dates or whatever. I reflectively said “I’ll do it!”. All the rest could be set!

The mad hatter wishes you 'a very merry unbirthday'. He serves tea and suddenly, images pop out of the teapot... Paliokalias, Royat pruning, 19th century documents, ducks, dogs, horses and a fireplace. And as long as you think you're seeing a dream, you come across an old factory, waterfalls, and crowds ringing bells and playing flutes and drums!... Is it a dream or the reality? Maybe we’re in Wonderland??? Very likely! I’m sure, however, we are in Xinomavro-land! Ladies and gentlemen, the legendary Naoussa Carnival and Domaine Dalamara!
