The island of Crete is perhaps best known for its production of red wine, but they also make quite a bit of white wine as well. Heraklion is located on the northern coast of Crete, almost right in the middle of the island. Vilana is the dominant grape of this region, though specific production figures are difficult to find. It's also somewhat difficult to find much information about Vilana. It seems to be a workhorse grape that is not widely grown off the island of Crete.

Cretan Meat Pie Kreatotourta) Recipe -

This traditional Cretan recipe is one of our favorite Greek dishes. I had this many times in a restaurant and wanted to reproduce this at home. The original recipe includes 3 kinds of Cretan cheeses (mizithra, malaka and staka), but it is almost impossible to find our Crete cheeses and we have to substitute it with different ones. Spearmint is essential for this recipe!
