Vertical Wine Tasting at Boutari Crete Winery
The Boutaris winery in Crete is located on the outskirts of the village of Skalani on the Phantaxometoho estate. Located just 8 km from Heraklion city center and 4 km from the archaeological site of Knossos, it is the jewel of the Archanes viticultural zone.
The Phantaxometoho estate, known as “the priory of phantoms,” owes its name to the efforts of its previous owner to protect it from pirate raids by spreading rumors that ghosts haunt the estate.
The winery is open to the public and has a complete range of services for visitors.
The ultimate experience for every wine lover is unapologetically a Vertical Wine Tasting which will allow you to understand in depth the History of our Winery. In this Wine Tasting experience you will get to taste different Vintages of the same Vinification, as our Certified Sommelier shares with you notes and thoughts about each vintage. Following your detailed tasting we will offer you the perfect pairing on each vintage according to each wine individually. Your Vertical tasting will take place in a private setting, underground, in the cellar of our winery, as you savor 5 different Vintages, around the lingering aromas of our aging barrels.
You have the option to choose between a selection of White Wines or a series of Red wines, with the according pairing.
