Λάδι, βότανα και κρασί: Γνωρίζοντας τους φυσικούς θησαυρούς της Κρήτης με το Crete Urban Adventures

 

Σ’αυτό το post θα σου μιλήσω για μια πολύ ιδιαίτερη εμπειρία που είχα την ευκαιρία να βιώσω πριν περίπου ένα μήνα στα Χανιά!! 

Μαζί με το Crete Urban Adventures περάσαμε ένα όμορφο απογευματόβραδο στο χωριό Δράπανο, στον δήμο Αποκόρωνα, ένα παραδοσιακό χωριουδάκι περίπου 30 χιλιόμετρα από τα Χανιά! Ξεκινήσαμε από την Δημοτική Αγορά των Χανίων όπου μας περίμενε ο οδηγός μας ο Μιχάλης!!

 

Στον Δράπανο μας υποδέχτηκε στο σπίτι της η Sharon Jackson. Θα μου πεις τί ιδιαίτερο υπάρχει σ’αυτό και μας το λες;;; Κι όμως, μιλάμε για ένα οικολογικό σπίτι!!! Ένα σπίτι φτιαγμένο με φυσικά υλικά: χώμα, πέτρες, άχυρα, ασβέστη και άμμο. Η οροφή έχει ηλιακά πάνελ που τροφοδοτούν το κτήριο με ρεύμα, καθώς και σωλήνες υδρορροής που μεταφέρουν το νερό σε στέρνες. Θέρμανση έχει από ενεργειακό τζάκι που καίει ξύλα και από εκεί μεταφέρεται η θερμότητα σε όλο τον χώρο με ζεστό νερό στα καλοριφέρ! Καλό εεε;;;

 

 

Το σπίτι στεγάζει επίσης την Ευρωπαϊκή Ακαδημία Βιωσιμότητας (European Sustainability Academy) της οποίας η Αγγλίδα Sharon (καθηγήτρια βιωσιμότητας) είναι και διευθύντρια. Εκεί γίνονται πολλές φορές τον χρόνο σεμινάρια και συνέδρια για την βιώσιμη ανάπτυξη, την κλιματική αλλάγη και άλλα θέματα που άπτονται της βιωσιμότητας!!! 

Τί καλύτερο λοιπόν από το να μάθω για τους φυσικούς θησαυρούς της Κρήτης σ’ενα κτήριο που είναι απόλυτα εναρμονισμένο με τη φύση και λειτουργεί αποκλειστικά μέσω αυτής.

Αφού γνωριστήκαμε με τους υπόλοιπους συμμετέχοντες του tour, πήραμε ένα ποτήρι μαλοτίρα στο χέρι (τσάι φτιαγμένο από κρητικά βότανα) και παρακολουθήσαμε ένα 15λεπτο βιντεάκι για το νησί της Κρήτης και τα προϊόντα που παράγει, κυρίως για το λάδι και το κρασί!! Μάλιστα το πιο καλό λάδι έρχεται από την περιοχή της Μεσσαράς στο Ηράκλειο!! 

 

 

Oil tasting

Το πρώτο μέρος του tour είχε oil tasting! Η αλήθεια είναι ότι δεν είχα μπει ποτέ στην διαδικασία να μάθω για το λάδι!! Η Στέλλα (συνεργάτης της Sharon, sommelier και oil enthusiast) λοιπόν μας έμαθε τα μυστικά του λαδιού!! Δοκιμάσαμε μάλιστα τρία κρητικά είδη: ένα από τη Σητεία, ένα από τον Κίσσαμο Χανίων και ένα από το Ηράκλειο. Μαζί με ψωμάκι και ελίτσες (μαύρες και πράσινες). Ήξερες εσύ πώς το καλό λάδι το ξεχωρίζεις όταν νιώθεις την γεύση του στον λαιμό;; Ή ότι οι πολυαιθανόλες είναι ένα συστατικό που κάνει καλό στην καρδιά;; Το σίγουρο είναι πως από εδώ και πέρα θα ψάχνω για έξτρα παρθένο ελαιόλαδο, αυτή είναι η καλύτερη σοδειά!!! 

 

 

Κυνήγι βοτάνων

Η αλήθεια είναι ότι η διαδικασία έμοιαζε λίγο με κυνήγι θησαυρού! Βγήκαμε έξω στον τεράστιο κήπο της Sharon και ψάξαμε για φυτά-βότανα, τα οποία έχουν και θεραπευτικές ιδιότητες, βότανα όπως είναι το θυμάρι, ο μάραθος, το χαρούπι. Μάλιστα έμαθα πως κατά την περίοδο της Κατοχής το χαρούπι ήταν πάρα πολύ γνωστό στους φτωχούς, καθώς το αντικαθιστούσαν με το ψωμί που ήταν δυσεύρετο και ακριβό! Πάντως έχει μεγάλη διατροφική αξία.

 

 

Wine tasting

Εεε ναι αυτό ήταν το καλύτερο κομμάτι!!! Ομολογώ πως αγαπώ το κρασί!! Και δεν χάνω ευκαιρία να δοκιμάζω καινούρια!! Τα Κρητικά κρασιά είναι από τα καλύτερα στην Ελλάδα και στον κόσμο!!! Δοκιμάσαμε δύο λευκά, δύο κόκκινα και ροζέ με συνοδεία χειροποίητης γραβιέρας και μυζήθρας από τα χεράκια της Στέλλας. Ααα και με σαλάμι και καπνιστό απάκι (που και αυτά τα έφτιαξε η Στέλλα!)!! Μάθε λοιπόν πώς το κρασί της ποικιλίας Μοσχάτο έχει πάντα άρωμα από τριαντάφυλλο!! Και πώς όταν ψάχνεις για κρασί να τσεκάρεις την οξύτητα, την ένταση, τη γλύκα του και τα ποσοστά του αλκοόλ! Να κοιτάς η γεύση στον ουρανίσκο σου να επιβεβαιώνει την μύτη σου. 

 

 

Πέρασα φ-α-ν-τ-α-σ-τ-ι-κ-ά, γνώρισα ανθρώπους που αγαπούν αυτό που κάνουν και πραγματικά συστήνω αυτό το tour σε όποιον ενδιαφέρεται να γνωρίσει την πιο αυθεντική πλευρά της Κρήτης!! Φαντάσου περάσαμε τόσο ωραία που ενω το tour τελειώνει περίπου στις 23.00, φύγαμε από το σπίτι της Sharon γύρω στις 2.οο!!! Καταλαβαίνεις λοιπόν ότι θα περάσεις πολύ πολύ όμορφα!!! 

Όλα αυτά τα ωραία μπορείς να τα βιώσεις κι εσύ στο Natural Treasures of Crete tour με το Crete Urban Adventures.

Ακολούθησέ τους και στα social media για να μαθαίνεις και νέα τους!

*Ευχαριστώ πολύ το Crete Urban Adventures για την φιλοξενία σ’αυτό το tour. Όπως πάντα οι φωτογραφίες και οι απόψεις είναι δικές μου.
