  • Not so easily found, you should actually literally between the vineyards via dirt road to reach every domain. Once on site it is beautiful domain (discreetly hidden behind a large Hague). After a tour of the vineyard we got a tasting of 6 wines, all of which were of good quality (= Bacchus package). The only downside was that the female guide was pretty cold and distant but maybe they just had a bad day. I would recommend a visit to this domain in any case but you need a car to get there otherwise have not.

  • I have visited this winery every year for the past 6 years. I can't express enough how amazing this place. The staff is super nice and their wine is to die for. I totally recommend the wine tour and tasting and I suggest you to try their food platters while drinking. We decided to take the "Cretan traditional food" and I asked for veggies only. This place IS the greatest winery around Crete.
  • Fantastic visit! Our guide was very nice and very knowledgeable. Wines and food were all delicious. A real treat!I would definitely go back and I highly recommend it.
  • What a lovely place. Our host was fantastic, her English excellent, we loved most of the wines, and the food was a great match (I fell in love with their home-made walnut pesto). Altogether, highly recommended and definitely worth a visit!
  • This was my first ever wine tasting, and all I can say is "bravo". The hostess and the rest of the staff were very courteous. I reslly enjoyed learning the history of the locale and their process for producing such amazing wines. All their samples were amazing, which made it that much harder to purchase only 2 wines out of their delicious selection
  • Ana our sommelier did a fantastic job explaining us the vineyards and the Cretan wines. The wine tasting at the end of a small tour was absolutely fantastic and we really enjoyed the overall experience.

Where to stay in Heraklion

Heraklion serves as a convenient base for exploring Crete and draws big crowds with its centrally located hotels, which offer free Wi-Fi, secure parking, private swimming pools, and fitness facilities. Although pricey, staying in the city center also keeps you near the area's top shopping, dining, and entertainment. If you don't mind driving to shops and restaurants, explore the mid-range hotels and small inns farther away from the busy coastline, where you can choose a budget-friendly room with sea views and easy access to quiet beaches.
