‘We Do Local’ Joins Forces with Wines of Crete
As part of its ongoing efforts to promote local culture and cuisine, support local producers and human resources and respect the environment, certification body “We Do Local” has joined forces with the Wines of Crete.
The ambitious cooperation kicked off with this weekend’s Oenotika Exhibition, where winemakers of Crete treated connoisseurs to the fruits of the Cretan vineyard.
We Do Local sponsored the event and was present to share ideas and draw up plans for the best and farthest-reaching promotion of Cretan wines.
Set up in collaboration with tourist professionals of Crete, We Do Local is a new accreditation body offering annual certification to ventures that successfully support and promote the island’s products.
The body’s aim is to upgrade the Greek tourist product and ensure that quality standards are being met through its certification standard titled “We Do Local” — a collaboration with accreditation body Cosmocert and social cooperative Local Food Experts.
The Wines of Crete is active in the consistent promotion of Cretan wine through educational activities and participation in trade fairs as well as the establishment of Crete as a prime culinary tourism destination.
