I visited a lot of wineries in Crete and I find the Lyrarakis Winery the best of all: top quality of the wines, professionality and trustworthy business behaviour of the Lyrarakis family. My job until a few years ago was Sommelier and Maitre in a lot of Greek hotels. My experience about wines let me see the Lyrarakis wines as the best winery in Crete.
