We intended to visit this winery first but went to a local one before hand by chance. We were disappointed by this one. It was very quiet. More of a museum for old wine making relics and a seating area upstairs for wine tasting. There...More

We were taken here as part of a cruise boat tour of the Cretan countryside. The welcome was friendly enough, but the wines are not good. Avoid if you have the choice.
