  • Tremendous place for a quality drop and divine atmosphere. We had Greg take us and he was terrific. We got the public bus from Chania for a couple of euro and it's a 10 minute walk from the drop off to the winery and its lovely out there. Check the bus timetable... as reliable as the service is, it is not overly frequent. Generous and relaxed tastings were thoroughly enjoyed by us. We've just come from Burgundy and this experience was better than anything up in France - true Greek hospitality. Good luck not wanting to buy something. Along with Samaria, Elafonisi and Phalasarna... this is a must do when in Crete.
  • Friendly staff and stunning surroundings, the only issue is that wine really isn't that great, which is the hole reason to visit. They are baby friendly with nappy changing facilities in the toilets and the cheese platter was good.
