This festival is a big deal in Zante. A ceremony will be held, then the drinking and dancing goes on all through the night. The wine festival takes place at end of August/start of September.

If you want to visit at this time of year, you will still get warm temperatures of around 24 degrees but prepare for the occasional shower.
