After reading these great reviews, there is not more to add than that it was an experience not to forget lightly. we were travelling around Crete, so we decided to buy 12 bottles of the 4 kinds in stock and made lots of friends simply by offering a taste;what lovely wines! Kudos to the professionalism of the son!!

Visited this fantastic little family run winery today and received the warmest of welcomes. Gives a real insight into a traditional small family run winery.

We had spent the early part of the morning visiting Knossos and thought this would be an ideal way to finish the afternoon. The drive was through wonderful small roads into the village and out the other side to the winery. Stunning views from up high across the vines and olive trees Met by the owner who is fourth generation... More

Family winery, you can taste wine and olive oil made by them and obviously you can buy it. Son of the owner was our guide, he explained us how they making wine and olive oil. It's really worth to visit.

If you want to find great local wine & olive oil you should definitely visit Winery Stilianou. Owners are very gentle and nice. Wine & oil are delicious, we felt in love with their dry red wine 2007. Highly recommend this place!

We had a fantastic hour or so at this lovely little family run winery. Not a 'wine buff' at all but I learned lots without being bored by hours of pontification. 'Tour' was short enough and informative enough to keep interest (even of the teenagers..) and given in fantastic English by the owners son (great job). It's an interesting but... More
