  • Loved it, Amazing! Great wines and a very warm, friendly, authentic experience. Generational family run winery, winemaker's daughter did our tasting and was just great! Very reasonably priced, especially compared to some other wineries on this island.
  • Interesting wine tasting experience. Guides very knowledgable. Price quite high in my opinion at €15 per person for small quantities of wine especially versus French wineries where tasting is free in the expectation you will buy some wine to take away! Pleased to have done but wouldn’t repeat.
