If you are staying near the town of Heraklion and plan to visit Knossos, you can combine the 2 visits (do Knossos first!). When we arrived we were met by a friendly lady you gave our group of 4 a tour of the facility. We saw the fermentation tanks, the wine cellar and an odd film about Crete history and... More

This winery provides a good introduction to Cretan wine country. Located just a few kilometres from the Knossos site. The winery has a large, modern, bright and pleasant tasting room overlooking the vineyard. For 5 euro there is a tour showing the basics of the winemaking process, followed by a 15 min video on Crete and its wine country. After... More

We had a great experience tasting the unique Creatan wines. We ended up buying two of the port ones (Moschato Spinas and Iouliatiko / Liatiko) The staff was courteous and friendly. They even let us try a couple of other wines that were not included in the tasting. The short tour and video around the the winery provided us with... More

So many wineries can be a bit off putting if you are not a big wine buff but there was such a friendly welcome here. Joined a small group for a tour and tasting for 5 euro. Tour was short but informative and there was a good film which everyone enjoyed. Tasted a white, a red and two dessert wines.... More

An excellent visit to one of Crete's up and coming wineries, 5 euros gets you a short tour and quite a lot of quality wine to sample. The staff were very knowledgeable and the video / DVD very informative. I think that we were lucky to get here an hour before a large party came from the cruise ship though.... More

We visited many other wineries and found the all lovely. we were very under impressed with Boutari, the location, it was very hot in the building and Unattractive, very small pours for the amount of money that you pay for the food and wine pairing.

I am in the wine business in the U.S. and thought it would be fun to do a winery visit while visiting Crete. Boutari is one of the wines I carry and I enjoyed being able to see their facility. We had some trouble figuring out how to book a tasting on the website, so we just showed up unannounced.... More

We enjoyed a short visit to the Boutari winery on the island of Crete in Greece. The winery is an easy drive from Heraklion. The view is beautiful, the winery clean & tasteful, the wine tasting is served in front of large windows with the view of the hills of vines. The tasting is accompanied by a short, oral (not...

Easy to find, beautifully designed, and with a traditional wine cellar, this is worth a visit if you're in the area. We found this to be the perfect alternative to the over-hyped and crowded Knossos not far away. Very friendly and welcoming with some good wines, some of which we bought for later consumption. The only strange bit was the... More
