    Beautiful views, helpful and friendly staff! At the bottom you can go if you want to do wine tasting, overlooks, however, did not see the sunset. At the top is not done tasting but you have wonderful pictures of the sunset. Generally worth the visit and the prices are too good to Santorini!

    This was quite possibly our favorite view in all of Santorini. About 10 minutes from Fira, very accessible by ATV or any mode of transportation. The staff is wonderful, very knowledgeable and personable. We split a tasting of their 5 wines for €10, and added a cheese plate appetizer. You'll go for the wine, and stay to soak in the views for the rest of the afternoon.

    Maria is the best ever, she was amazing. As two that live close to Napa, this winery can't be beat. Love the wines and the tour!

    It just won 2016 Gold Award. If you enjoy California wines, you'll probably like these. The Mandaliria is super dry, but really has a 'lot going on'! We bought a bottle, even though I don't care for very dry wines. After 25 years of being closed, this place is now open. We were super happy when our server, named Maria, defended us and our table from the incredibly rude & super stereotype crowd of Chinese tourists.
