We had a great half a day seeing the vineyards and experiencing the wine and how it was made. We opted for the addition of seeing the actual vineyards as well as the winery (highly recommend this!). First, our guide picked us up by our hotel and took us up the mountains to see the vineyards. On the way, he... More

We had the premium tasting with cheese platter for €44. Quite price but the wines were very good. We bought the delicious Pink and the red Nostos Blend, and a stone jar of the sea salt which they serve to go with olive oil and biscuits to cleanse the palate. We were with a large party of Americans who were... More

It s a very nice place, we enjoyed some wine and cheese in the garden. The host gave us details about every wine and they also have a little shop where u can purchase their products. Their dreamy garden helps contour the village atmosphere and you really start to appreciate the silence. I would recommend this getaway place to other... More

My family of 8 visited the winery a couple weeks ago and I could not possibly rave about it more. Not only is the winery stunningly beautiful, but the wine is delicious and the staff is warm, friendly and welcoming. Thanks for a wonderful day!

We came 6 pm and they already closed but still they offer us to taste some of their wines.. And it was so good.. Especially the "red Blend". Vitaliy was telling about the winery( in russian) and Kleopatra is a "wine geek" and told a lot about the wines. Garden surroundings is beautiful and its absolutely worth a trip. Thank... More
