Welcoming and relaxing tour with some excellent wines to taste. Adonis the sommelier was fabulous and presented flawlessly despite some rather loud tour members. Recommend 100%

Visited as part of a Land Rover Safari we were given an insight into the history and production of Cretan wine before an informed tasting of several varieties of the family's wine range. Informative and insightful.
