Wine and Culinary / Agricultural
Did you know that Greece ranks third in the world for its population of olive trees? Greece is also one of the top ten countries in the world with the largest production of pistachios. Agriculture was the foundation of the ancient Greek economy and still has a major role today. There are many activities and sites to enjoy in this year-round agritourism destination.
Expedition and Travel expertly creates customized itineraries for agricultural themed tours paired with technical visits and classic sightseeing in Greece. We will arrange for groups to see some of the best farms in Greece, to meet with leaders in agribusinesses and farm politics, to talk with farmers, shepherds, beekeepers, fishermen, vineyard owners and dairy farmers, or even visit the American Farm School in Thessaloniki.
We have a myriad of contacts in all regions of Greece so groups can see first-hand the Greek olive oil, wine and cheese production, citrus fruit orchards, canning facilities and more.
Whether your group wishes to visit Aegina Island to witness pistachio production, or if you wish to learn about the 2,000 year-old production of the powerful Retsina wine (and why a strong tasting garlic dip is an ideal accompaniment!), we will customize the perfect agricultural tour for you. Of course, such tours can include wonderful culinary components as well.
