We visited this winery on a tour and had a lovely experience. The wine is great and the history of the winery is fantastic. The vincento is still produced via old methods which is very cool.

Even though they were botling their wine when we arrived, the son of the owner received us and we had a nice tasting. Recommend the Assyrtiko and of course their Vinsanto.
