If you are staying near the town of Heraklion and plan to visit Knossos, you can combine the 2 visits (do Knossos first!). When we arrived we were met by a friendly lady you gave our group of 4 a tour of the facility. We saw the fermentation tanks, the wine cellar and an odd film about Crete history and... More

This winery provides a good introduction to Cretan wine country. Located just a few kilometres from the Knossos site. The winery has a large, modern, bright and pleasant tasting room overlooking the vineyard. For 5 euro there is a tour showing the basics of the winemaking process, followed by a 15 min video on Crete and its wine country. After... More

We had a great experience tasting the unique Creatan wines. We ended up buying two of the port ones (Moschato Spinas and Iouliatiko / Liatiko) The staff was courteous and friendly. They even let us try a couple of other wines that were not included in the tasting. The short tour and video around the the winery provided us with... More

So many wineries can be a bit off putting if you are not a big wine buff but there was such a friendly welcome here. Joined a small group for a tour and tasting for 5 euro. Tour was short but informative and there was a good film which everyone enjoyed. Tasted a white, a red and two dessert wines.... More

An excellent visit to one of Crete's up and coming wineries, 5 euros gets you a short tour and quite a lot of quality wine to sample. The staff were very knowledgeable and the video / DVD very informative. I think that we were lucky to get here an hour before a large party came from the cruise ship though.... More

I am in the wine business in the U.S. and thought it would be fun to do a winery visit while visiting Crete. Boutari is one of the wines I carry and I enjoyed being able to see their facility. We had some trouble figuring out how to book a tasting on the website, so we just showed up unannounced.... More

We enjoyed a short visit to the Boutari winery on the island of Crete in Greece. The winery is an easy drive from Heraklion. The view is beautiful, the winery clean & tasteful, the wine tasting is served in front of large windows with the view of the hills of vines. The tasting is accompanied by a short, oral (not...

Easy to find, beautifully designed, and with a traditional wine cellar, this is worth a visit if you're in the area. We found this to be the perfect alternative to the over-hyped and crowded Knossos not far away. Very friendly and welcoming with some good wines, some of which we bought for later consumption. The only strange bit was the... More
