The family has revived two old Cretan wines, Dafni and Plyto, and recently included the forgotten white grape Melissaki in their range.

On your 1.5-hour tour, you will first be shown around Lyraraki's vineyards, after which you can taste the wines from the old oak barrels in the wine cellar. You will taste six different wines, accompanied by Greek biscuits and olives.

Contact the winery at least 24 hours before your preferred tour date and time and enjoy the freedom to choose when you visit!
