We had such a wonderful evening with Alex and the family in the winery and in the garden for wine tasting. The evening was very informal and we felt very relaxed. We sampled lots of wine and enjoyed the cheeses, meats and pastries provided. We also enjoyed the yogurt and quince (second helpings provided by mother). A lovely family and a unique experience enjoying an evening with this small wine making family. Would recommend to anyone with a passion for wine and good company. Alex was an excellent host speaking perfect English and organising everything we needed (including transport from our hotel) to the winery.

The winery tour and tasting with Alex and his family was fantastic! If you are a wine lover and want to learn about local Cretan wines while tasting in a lovely and calm atmosphere, this is the experience for you. I was a solo traveller on my trip, so you can enjoy it by yourself or if traveling with family and friends. The small winery is located just outside Heraklion and is a short taxi ride.
