Harvest grapes to make wine or tsipouro, or pick fruits, herbs, and mushrooms. Take part in reaping and learn about bee-keeping by having your own hands-on experience. Wineries will let you sip exquisite wine and initiate you into the secrets of wine: varieties, aromas, colours, tastes.

In agrotourism cooperatives around the country, one can take lessons of cookery and pastry and prepare old-school recipes of jams, stewed fruits, spoon sweets, home-made bread, fresh pasta, pies, liqueurs and other delights of the local cuisine. Last but not least, in pottery workshops you’ll develop your handcraft skills or you might also make the very presents you’ll carry back home from Greece.
