Fantastic wines, very welcoming and friendly family greeting. Tour to the point and answered questions. Getting there was an adventure ☺ but signed nearer to the vineyard. Overall definitely worth the visit.

We loved this surprisingly lovely informative tour of Maria, daughter of this family of four. She showed us besides the grapes and olives lots of herbs that are around the house. This is Cretan life with enjoying all the goods of the gods.
