There is a wine festival each year, in Rethymnon, ordinarily in late July. Also, whilst strictly speaking the Dourakis winery is in the Chania nomos, its position in the village of Alikambos is close enough to the border with Rethymnon for it to be easily accessible. There are 17 wines are produced here (including one of each organic red and white) seven white, eight red and two rose. Visitors to the vineyard and winery are able to receive expert advice from trained advisors, in the wine-tasting cellar.
