Things to do in Crete - Wine Tasting

Thanks to the girls trip out last October, we discovered the fab, family-run Dourakis Winery that offered tours and tasting.  I, therefore, had to take Chris back this April and he absolutely loved it.  I was worried that the kids might get bored, but Jasper (7) in particular enjoyed it and asked lots of questions.


For those tasting the tour, it costs 5 Euros, including a small plate of food, some simple yet delicious fare. We had omelette, cheese, olives, ham and raisins.

Adonis, the son of the founder took us round, and it is clear he is both knowledgeable and enthusiatic about the business.  He is also fluent in several languages, as we heard him converse easily with the other guests there. We both found some wine we liked, and at 4 and 5 Euros a bottle, an absolute bargain for the quality of wine it was!

For further information you can contact them direct here.   I would add that their leaflet says opening is from 10:00 to 14:00 and then from 16:00 to 18:30. However, when we phoned they were continuing through the day!

Thoroughly recommended, thank you Adonis!
