  • Very grand wine tasting facility for the size of the vineyard/winery. A somewhat robotic description of the wines by a condescending host who did not show much passion or maybe was having a bad day...

  • I had the pleasure of a personal wine tasting at Karavitakis Winery. It was very professional and the wines are varied, interesting, and of a really high quality. I would definitely recommend this for wine-loving travellers and local enthusiasts.
  • It worth a visit. Where I come from we have a huge couture for the wines but Greek wines are unavailable so I was really curious to see what the territory has to offer. I was positively impressed from the Greek wines, still it would not be my first choice when other countries are available Pro -Nice venue -Decent wines -Polite staff -Good value Cons -Nothing else to see beside the bottles and a couple of Barrique -I was expecting vineyards but is just a production center, this is the only wine tasting I’ve done so far where you don’t see any vine -No visit to the production area to show how the wine is done -long wait in between each tasting
  • I did Premium wine tasting with my partner and I have to say that the experience was one of the most disappointing encounter and unpleasant one in my life. Given the instructions on the website, we were very meticulous and arrived 10 minutes earlier than our tasting session. However the session started with a 30 min delay and nobody neither explained why nor apologized for the delay. for other people to arrive without any explanations and apologies. During the session the host informed us about each wine (we tasted 6 by the way), but he just left after every serving. He seemed bored, forced and annoyed by everyone’s presence. One would expect a tasting session to be interactive and engaging with the host. However it was not even being close to being fun and informative. Additionally, we used the same wine glass for all the different wines. Finally, I have to emphasize that the host was very rude to a lady who was trying to learn about local grapes. We couldn’t believe the hostility. I would suggest to choose another winery for a pleasant tasting session. This was extremely poor!!
  • Visited the winery based on a recommendation without an booked tasting. We had a great talk with the owners and they let us taste their wide range of wines. I highly recommend the blend and the private selection wines. Delicious!
  • Lovely little boutique winery. More of an educational wine tasting, the chap was very knowledgeable, and the wines are interesting, modern and delicious. We arrived in the midst of a big group tasting, and they were very upfront that we would have to wait half an hour.. so we went for a wander through the olive groves and tasted some incredible fresh oranges. The best wine was the local skin contact one that we sampled. We came with 2 young children and they were accommodating. What is really nice is that they are really pushing against the “over-oaking” of wine. Definitely visit if you are near
