“execellent!”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

It was our first winery experience and was great.
We order the winery tour few weeks before.
Our Guide was the owner's son - very friendly and very nice guy. He showed us whole Winery, the basement with hundreds bottles of wines and in the end was the lunch time with wines testing, which we booked. He showed us how to test the wines and answer every question.
They've got very good wines. We've spent 2 hours and have a wonderful time.
You HAVE TO go there. Highly recommend!
Many thanks for very professional experience.

“Wine tasting in Crete”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

This was our first visit to Dourakis Winery, but it certainly won't be our last. We will definitely bring friends again next year.

It was a pleasure to meet Adonis and his enthusiasm for his wine and the business in general was infectious.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meze lunch and tasting some excellent wines in a very relaxed atmosphere. We look forward to returning next year.

“What a gem!!!”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

A precious and intimate introduction to Cretan viniculture, everything about our tasting experience for these award-winning wines was first rate! From our tour with the extremely knowledgeable Adonis, who painted for us a vivid picture of how their wines are lovingly nurtured and developed, to our tasting of the sophisticated flavours in an incredible setting that are the fruits of their labours, we look forward to sharing the 3 bottles we purchased back home with our friends and family, so that we can proudly introduce them to something so special. A feast for the senses in every way!

“Great first experience into Greek wines”
Reviewed 20 September 2013

Even if you are not into wines very much, travelling in Crete should include a visit at winery. Dourakis winery took us with half hour prior notice (although for your own good i suggest to contact earlier if you would like to get more out of it - we wanted just a short overview). We were introduced to some of the most popular wines representing the variety one small winery can make (fabulous!) + we got a short visit through the winery and wine making process. The prices of Dourakis wines are very OK so be ready to bring some home. ;)

“Wine tourism in Crete”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

If you are into wine tasting and wine tourism, Dourakis Winery should be definitely one of your stops during your trip. Nice people, Cretan hospitality and of course very good wine! Ask for the Malvasia Aromatica wine. It's simply awesome!
