Katakolon 2

We left Prygos and then headed the little Monastery of Panayia Cremasti perched high on a hill.   This church is actually built into the side of the hill. The views were spectacular and we were lucky enough that someone was there to open the small church up for us.  Instead of climbing the stairs back to the car we walked down the hill to the bottom where George picked us up... looking back up the hill you could see just next to the church a hole where behind it was where the old church use to be.

Off again to visit Olympia Land Winery a small family run business.  When we arrived we were greeted by Amanta the owners daughter. Amanta is very warm and welcoming and took us on a tour around the vineyard, the processing room and the cellar.  We were then sat down ready for the tasting..... out came the 2 plates full of cheese, salami, olives, bread, tomatoes and cucumbers. We tried half a glass of White then half a glass of red topped off with a shot of Raki. Everything home grown or made in the winery. The cost was 8 euro’s each and it was well worth it.  All wine tastings should be like this LOL

George then decided to swing by his home and we met his wife.  She was a little surprised especially as she was out working in the garden.  All the homes surrounding his house belong to relatives and on the way out we stopped to pick figs from his mother in laws tree... we enjoyed these at sailaway.
