I am the co-founder of Tasting Crete. A unique spot that creates gastronomic experiences in Heraklion City Center, based on the food culture of Crete. After spending many years abroad and completing my Ph.D. in Anthropology, I decided to return to my hometown and focus on food tourism. The last 6 years I have invested all my time and energy in highlighting the magnificent food and the amazing flavors of Crete through the histories of its people. Together with my business partner, we have created Tasting Crete, where people can explore, learn, and interact through gastronomic experiences.

We had a wonderful evening with great wines and a delicious meal. We were impressed by the historical details in connection to the wines and learned a great deal about Cretan wine. The choices of wine combined with the food were amazing! The wines were even better when you ate a matching dish. In addition to the great wine tasting I have to say that also the meal was one of the best we had on Crete so far. He really knows what he is doing and I would say it was a really good deal for what we got. Due to COVID we had a private tasting but he made us really feel welcome.

Our first ever Airbnb experience and my first ever wine tasting. Georgios was super welcoming and friendly and able to tailor the tasting to our experience as ‘newbies’. He knew the history and culture of Cretan wine like a true expert and really shed some light into Greek wine and the local varieties. The wine was of course delicious but the pairings with the food was one of the best dining experiences we had on the island so far. Georgios also offered some fantastic recommendations for local bars and beaches. A true local expert and an experience I couldn’t recommend highly enough.

Georgios was an amazing host! The whole experience was one to remember. The Cretan wines he picked out for us were really good and he explained the whole history of wine making in Crete. His mother made incredibly delicious traditional meals to go with wine (each was attached to the wine itself and complemented it beautifully). Definitely recommend! A must see if you like wines and learning about new sorts.

Georgios took the time to share with us the background stories of the origins of the Cretan olive oils, wines, and the foods he shared with us. He also has a good understanding of the history of the island, and of the various varieties of olives and grapes. In addition, he let us take our time with all the delicious pairings he offered us; he didn’t rush us, and we ended up spending 3.5 hours with him, when we had thought it would take only one hour or so. He had a good sense of humor, which we really appreciated, and had interesting experiences and stories to tell. We absolutely loved the experience, and we HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who comes to Heraklion!

Georgios is a wonderful host! The wine tasting was very informative and different from anything we’ve done in the past. He establishes a very safe and social environment and tells many a anecdote to make the experience all the better. I’d recommend this to anyone looking for an immersive wine tasting experience for all levels of wine expertise! :)
