I live here in Crete, in the Chania district, but last week was my first visit to this exquisite place with some out of town visitors. I can't believe I haven't been before! Everything about this winery is perfect.....the location, the building, the ambiance, the flowers, the guides. But above all, the wines are superb. I will definitely be back,... More

We had a very nice time at the winery, which is so beautiful and cared after. I would just improve a couple of things, I found the winetasting experience was a bit too fast and as mentioned in another review guests should be given some sort of finger food to pair with wines as many aromas and scents of these...

The winery had the most informative tour of the winery that I've ever been on. The food was amazing and came from a local tavern in the next town. The wines were delicious and the tour was very informative and is a very relaxed atmosphere and you didn't want to leave when you were done! But that's the best thing... More

Went here for a wine tour with my family and had a great time touring the facility and tasting several delicious wines. The winery was beautiful and all the wines were fantastic. This should definitely be a stop on any trip to the Chania region in Crete.

The winery tour was informative, interesting and fun. Our tour host really knew a lot about the winery's beginning, development and wine making process which she communicated well. The house and lands are gorgeous. Tasting at the end was wonderful.

The first night at our hotel, they tried to sell us local wine. My husband and I bought some but were incredibly disappointed. We thought, There must be some good wine on Crete. I mean, Greek is an ancient civilization. If there's one thing they should have done, it's wine making. The hunt began and we discovered Nostos Wines. Instead... More
