Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very dissapointing. I visited a lot of wineries around many countries but this one was really not worth visiting. The wine is not something special, the service and sommelier was very unfriendly, when we wanted to taste something else it was not possible. Do not reccomend.

We took a vine tasting trip. Based on reviewes we expected something really good but our experience was bad. We had 7 vines to taste. The sommelier who was presenting the vines provided poor information. Nothing about the region or Cretan grapes, basic info about the vines which we could read on the label. The whole experience was 1h while the sommelier was with us maybe 15 min, he was cleaning the tables during the trip. We read a lot about the vineary and vines, and hoped to learn much more. 2 starts for good vines. It is worth to buy them.

We tried wines indigenous to Crete for which the winery specializes. We enjoyed the range of wines from white through red. A great variety of tastes. Friendly and informative. A great visit! We bought three different wines, but had a difficult time deciding. If we were staying longer in Crete, we would have bought more!

It was a last minute decision visiting this winery, but it was one of the best decisions, it was a very nice, peaceful and tasty afternoon, in the middle of the the olive trees, with very good wines and so nice atmosphere…you can go there by yourself, asking a wine tasting or just drinking a glass of wine wine. Not far from Chania and few steps from Platanias, Agia Marina, Kolymvari and Kissamos. Love it!

We more or less wandered in here on a whim after we followed signs we saw as we were going to Terra Crete for olive oil (these two experiences can be combined in a half day for a great self-led gastronomy tour!). Despite having no appointment with them they were very nice and flexible and let us join in the next scheduled tasting group which, lucky for us, was in 15 minutes. The tasting was in a lovely outdoor area and included seven wines (for us, 3 whites, a rosé, 2 reds and a dessert wine) served with local cheese, olives, tomatoes and a hard bread. I have had some negative experiences with Cretan wines in the past and my expectations weren’t high but they were totally blown out of the water. The wines were great and we received excellent information about them. They were also very reasonably priced; our selection ranged from 10-30 euro a bottle. The price of the tasting was very reasonable. Strongly recommend.

We got a discounted ticket due to the winery not being open for tours (due to building work), but still could enjoy the wine tasting. 2 whites, a rose, 2 reds and a dessert wine. Accompanied by bread, cheese and olives. Adonis was leading the wine tasting, he is clearly very knowledgeable and experienced and was able to answer all questions with ease and clarity.

The setting amongst olive groves is peaceful and the winery itself is kept in top condition. We bought a few bottles whilst there too, very reasonably priced for wines of that distinction too. Well worth a visit

The experience was well worth the drive! My friend cellars 2000 bottles of California Wine!
These Greek Wines were outstanding and very beyond comparable … leather and smoke.. mixed with rich berries and just the right amount of Greek minerals from the soil.
I packed as much as I could home… because you can not get these wines in the US… few home with just the cloths on my back… so I empty my suit cases…
Make sure Anthony provides your tasting experience… !!!

Came here without a reservation and in the middle of a tasting. The gentleman that was leading the tasting offered us to join the current tasting that he was conducting or to come back in an hour for the next one. We chose to come back and glad we did. We had enjoyed the deluxe tasting with many of their wines. The gentleman was very passionate and gave great descriptions of the wine. It was quite the experience. Would highly recommend!

We read on the website about the wine tasting tour. We arrived at the vineyard around 10.00 am. The whole trip was about showing us ... a machine for pouring wine into bottles. That was it. Then there was a tasting. During this tasting, the guide talked on the phone for a long time. My recommendation - don't waste your time visiting this place.

Very grand wine tasting facility for the size of the vineyard/winery. A somewhat robotic description of the wines by a condescending host who did not show much passion or maybe was having a bad day. You won’t see the wine-making facilities nor see any vineyard around the property which is surrounded by large olive groves. The wines included in the Premium Tasting were good although very oaky and clearly geared for the American market. No price list available in the shop which made me a little suspicious. Suspicion confirmed when I found out that the truly interesting wines (e.g. the mono varietals mandilari and kotsifali) were priced at 38€ a bottle!
