  • This was the highlight of my trip to Greece. It was amazing to get a personal tour of a working olive tree orchard and winery from the owner himself, whose family has been here for generations! He was an excellent host, and I learned a ton. My friends and I had the place to ourselves, it felt like we had booked an exclusive private tour (though we hadn't -- we'd just paid 5 euro). Plus the wine and olive oil are both delicious!
  • As an authentic wine tour experience as it gets! The owner 3 generation wine maker gives a great tour. Not to mention the wine needs little introduction, truly top quality, the 2010 local grape is delicious!
  • We decided to visit this winery when our cruise ship stopped in Heraklion, unfortunately we did not realize it was a Greek holiday on the day we were at port. Even though the winery was closed, the owner brought us inside and gave us a tour of the wine making room, the cellar and the vineyard. He also gave us a full tasting and allowed us to purchase wine to take back with us. This was one of the best winery visits my wife and I have ever had and we've visited a lot of wineries over the years. The hospitality and the wine were absolutely awesome and we could not be happier with our choose to visit this great establishment.
  • It was an excellent experience. It's a pretty small winery and that's the best part. The tour ( including wine tasting 5€ ) is a bit overpriced because it's really short. Though the wine tasting was pretty good. It included 4 different wines and also olive oil tasting. The family who runs the place are very friendly and passionate about their job. I really recommend it.
  • Very friendly owner, keen to show you around the place: winery tour & tasting of their four wines & olive oil (unfortunately we only could taste 3 -rose was sold out-) Worth a visit if you are near by.
