What a wonderful way to discover local wine and Greek wine in general. A fantastic and knowledgeable host, who was passionate about wine and was more than happy to answer any questions and share his enthusiasm.
The wine choices were guided by what we liked and expertly matched with food (which was delicious and plentiful). The atmosphere was lovely and the whole experience was enjoyable. We discovered some new grape varieties and will definitely be buying more Greek wines in the future.

Good wine and company in a picturesque little open kitchen. Giorgos was an entertaining, generous, and very knowledgeable host. Well worth it - and a great opportunity to learn about Cretan wine.

We spent almost 3 hours tasting local food and wines. We got lots of information about wine making and little bit of Cretan wine making history also. Our host was very professional and friendly and the 3 hours went fast. And we should not have eaten before going to the tasting, the food was great;)

If you are interested in local food and wine, this is the place to start!
