Wine Museum

On the upper floor of Pnevmatikakis Winery is the Wine Museum, looking towards the panoramic view of Gulf of Kisamos.  The Wine Museum comprises a range of exhibits related to viniculture, vinification, production of raki (tsikoudia) and the daily life of older generations on the island of Crete.
The Museum is decorated with wall paintings, depicting scenes related to all the phases of viniculture and wine making, as are applied on the island from the ancient times until today, (display order from left to right):  The pruning, the hoeing, the koutsokorfisma, the grape harvest, the traditional wine press (the so-called patitiri), the traditional wine cellar, wherein the oak barrels were filled by a special type of wine bag, aski, which in the old times was the only transfer medium for wine and usually was made by goat’s skin.  The last wall painting depicts the “laventzi”, “kazani” or “rakokazano”, as is called the traditional distillation of raki.

On the veranda of Wine Museum our visitors can gaze at the breathtaking view of the Gulf of Kisamos, enjoying a glass of fine wine.

Our Museum is open to visitors during the entire year. More specifically: from April 1st to October 31 is open from 8.00 am to 8.00 pm, Monday to Sunday. From November 1st to March 31 is open every day except Sunday, from 8.00 am to 17.00 pm. The visit to the Wine Museum is free of charge.
