We had an awesome wine tasting session here yesterday with another couple as part of a brilliant Food and Drink Walking Tour (by Chania Adventures). Our host, Maria, was so knowledgeable and passionate about wine. We have done other wine tasting sessions before but I learned so much more in the session. When I say we tasted the wine; I mean we really tasted it. We learned how to discover how aged the wine is, if the sulphate levels are ok, the acidity levels and how this affects what to eat with it, how to identify flavour notes and most importantly how to tell if a wine is good for having with food or if in your personal taste it is wine for drinking. The shop itself it lovely and stocked with excellent wines all selected by Maria. I would I highly recommend this experience or even just stopping by to pick up some good wine to anyone staying in the area. Thank you Maria!
We came here for a 1 hour wine tasting at 11am. We tasted 4 wines for €25 each. The shop is cute and Maria the hostess was knowledgeable and very friendly. We ended up having about 1.5hrs which suited us as we got to chatting to the other couple on the tasting. The wines were great and it was an interesting and informative event. Would recommend to wine lovers 🙂
Maria was a fantastic wealth of information! My wife and I were looking to taste some Cretan wines and we got that and more. She walked us through all of the steps for wine tasting and helped us to distinguish all of the tasting notes and visuals clues to ‘read’ the different wines. We are so glad we did this!
Fantastic, very informative tasting. We got to choose some of the wines for the tasting, and ended up having two whites, one rose, one red for 25€. The tasting took a bit over an hour. Lovely wines, perfect service.
