  • Was here in early March and visited various places and ended here to taste the wine. There was no one else here, but we got to taste 5 different wines and was welcomed on a fantastic way. Learned a little bit about wine and also had to buy with a little home! Is located in a great area and it is recommended to visit!

  • If you like wine then you should book a wine tasting here. I would suggest also getting the food option to help you not get drunk :) It is worth it. Also, you can get all the wines you enjoyed and either take them with you or have them delivered at your home
  • Becky: relaxing, high quality service, beautiful wine. Faye: a great variety of wines served with a smile. Victoria: the staff (we had Martina) are friendly, informative and fun.

  • 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.
  • Gorgeous place! The nicest hospitality ! Oh.. the wines ? One better then the other ! Delicious wines, can't get enough ! We loved them all ! Thank you Afshin and Gregory for a great Cretan hospitality ! Wonderful Sunday morning , the place is magnificent , the wines are devine ! Wonderful
