  • 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
  • The best and most genuine winery I've ever been to! We signed up for a scheduled wine tasting tour at 12 euros per pax for 6 wines tasting with cheese and rusk bread and because there's no other people joining our group of 4, we got lucky and got a private tour! Anna who is the sommelier is really amazing - knowledgeable, friendly, always willing to help and answer any queries we have. She first brought us to the vineyards to have a look at the grapes and explain the microclimate conditions. Fully agree with their direction of only growing grapes that are well suited to the climate for the best results, that's why they got plenty of Cretan variety grapes and lesser international ones :) very unique and was great to experience different wines. After which we were presented with olives, sundried tomatoes, rusk bread, cheeses to complement the wines. Anna explained each and every wine well, the tastes and flavours and what it's good to be paired with. We could see her passion in her craft and she was kind enough to allow me to try a few more varieties which I eventually bought them home! Prices range from 6-15 euros per bottle. Highly recommend this personal, second generation family owned winery (with plenty of awards) for a memorable and educational experience.
  • Arrogant and incredibly condescending representative. We visited for a tasting session and loved one if their red wines. At the end of the session I asked for the price but what i recived in as an ansewer was "it is too expensive". It was disgusting. The bottle was actually €15. Loved the wines but if suggest they work on their soft skills
  • Our favorite winery (thus far) in Crete! It seems there are designated tours that you're meant to join - last one is 15:00. We didn't realize this... A woman w/ dark curly hair was incredibly nice and accommodated us anyway. :) Very interesting and quite good wines. Definitely try the Mandilari and ZaZaZu.
  • interesting tour, delicious wine. by following the gps I got lost. better to ask information about the way when booking the tour. recommended!

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.
