2020 Visiting Packages and Pricelist

 
The Lyrarakis Estate is a family winery which has been producing high quality wines since 1966 with a strong focus on rare local varieties and producing single variety wines. The family is credited with the revival of two ancient Cretan varieties, Dafni and Plyto while a third “vineyard treasure”, the indigenous Melissaki, is recently added to the credits. 
Surrounded by the picturesque setting of the vineyards and the Lassithi mountains, we offer you the opportunity to enjoy a tour in our open-air vine museum and our winery and complement your visit with an excellent regional picnic, in close contact with nature. Discover local varieties and wines distinguished by the uniqueness of their origin and heritage and take cooking lessons for creating authentic Cretan dishes.
