    Great day out
    Geoffrey_H, Oct 2023
    Relaxed day throughout with nicely spaced stops at vineyard, old winery and wine cooperative Lots of interesting information given throughout the tour about the history and current wine making and olive farming. Great wines to taste at the cooperative. Lovely guide who spoke excellent English and told us lots about her family’s vineyards as well as the olive groves they farmed.

    Hannah_W, Sep 2023
    We had an incredible time with Julia, she was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. I love that Julia keeps the size of the group small too. The wine tasting was wonderful but my favourite part was seeing Julia’s family home and having a traditional Greek “snack.” The olive oil we had was to die for. It was an amazing experience, would highly recommend!!
    An outstanding wine tour with a personal touch
    Ivan_C, Aug 2023
    A wine tour unlike any wine tour I have ever been on. It starts with a behind the scenes visit to a vineyard and olive tree farm. We were luckily enough to be here during harvesting. Followed by a snack of local bread, feta, olives, tomatoes and olive oil in the family home looking at old oak barrels and olive oil vats. Then on to a superb wine tasting. This is a wine tasting trip not to be missed for the authentic personal touch.
    Unmissable

    Lorna_M, Jul 2023
    I cannot put into words what a wonderful experience we have had today. From being picked up at our accommodation, to having such a lovely time with the other 2 people on our small tour, Julia was such a delight and clearly a credit to her family and their business! From seeing the vineyard to tasting local treats and the grappa! This was all before the wine tasting - which included 8 different wines! Highly recommend for the local and personal tough! We had a kefi time!

    We had a genuine experience at the wine tasting with Julia. Julia is a lovely person and she managed to transfer us her love for the grapes , the olives and the wine that they produce. I strongly recommend the wine tasting!!

    Not to be missed
    DEBORAH_S, Jun 2023
    Julia’s wine tour is what holidays are made of. A memory that will keep us going through long dark winters. Julia drove us over the hills to the most beautiful valley of vines and told us how her family make wine & grappa with her grandfather’s original equipment. Julia is extremely knowledgeable not only about wine making but also her Kefalonian heritage. A truly memorable tour. Thank you Julia!

    Nicola_H, May 2023
    This was a great trip. It was informative and full of personal experience from the guide. The small group worked well. The snack was very good and of course the wines were excellent.
    Book this tour.

    Book this tour. You won't regret it. Julia was amazing throughout the tour. She picked us up from outside our villa and to our surprise we were the only people on the tour making it even more special. Julia said that even at busy times of year she will never take more than two groups at one time, so it's really intimate. Julia was very knowledgeable, friendly and funny. The perfect guide. Everything on this tour was beautiful, the drive up to the groves, Julia's parents house and finally ending at the winary. Julia made us a beautiful lunch and gave us some wine. Then we went to taste the wines and got nice and tipsy. The wines were really cheap to buy too. Make this tour a stop if you're in cephalonia.
    Wonderful Greek hospitality with wine, not to be missed.
    Russell_P, Aug 2022
    Julia was an amazing host explaining in detail the grape and olive growing process with a trip to her vineyard and family home. We had an amazing traditional Greek snack alongside wine which was delicious. Following this we went to the vineyard to taste 8 different wines from white, rose, red and a dessert wine. The wine were amazing and Julia explained all about each wine. The setting and view is beautiful. Julia was so relaxed and we never felt rushed. Definitely worth doing.
    Not your usual wine tour.
    Audra_H, Jun 2022
    This isn’t your usual wine tour trip. You are picked up from your hotel in an air conditioned ford galaxy. Julia our personal guide introduces herself and escorts us through the whole tour. She is very knowledgable, friendly, easy to get along with and is very interesting. She is also a very careful driver. She takes you through the most beautiful Kefalonian countryside to the slopes of grape vines that her family have farmed for generations. We learnt so much from her about the process of farming the grapes, olive trees and the importance of the bees. She then drove us to her parents home which is a charming, traditional kefalonian house. Julia showed us the barn where wine used to be made in the old fashioned way. She then brings you out a delicious, rustic kefalonian meal containing local ingredients and produce. We enjoyed this in the courtyard with a local wine and a sample of grappa! This part of the tour is so relaxing and Julia is a very personable lady, sharing her experiences of being brought up in the farming village. She then drives us to the Robola winery, where we sat outside looking out over the stunning Omala valley. The setting is beautiful. Here we sampled 8 different wines which were all delicious. You are able to purchase wines but there is absolutely no pressure at all to do so. Julia then carefully drove us back to our hotel. It was a delight getting to know her and learning so much from this lovely lady. The memories from this trip will last a lifetime and I thoroughly recommend it.
    Fantastic afternoon
    Russell_N, May 2022
    We were picked up from our villa and taken to Julia’s farm. After looking around the vines and olive trees we went to the family home and tried some wine with traditional Greek food including some of the olive oil from the farm. We also had a measure (or two for the braver amongst us) of homemade Grappa which was delicious. It was very special to be invited to Julia’s family home and to try the food and drinks produced on the farm. Following the visit to the farm we went to the Robola Co-operative winery and tried 8 different wines, a mixture of Robola and other grape varieties grown on the island. Julia guided us through each of them - very enjoyable particularly in such beautiful surroundings. I would certainly recommend this trip - great for someone else to do the driving, to see what life is like on the island and to taste some great wine. Julia made it seem as though we were on a tour with an old friend.
    Amazing!!

    By far the best thing we did in Kefalonia. Personal tour from a knowledgeable and friendly guide. We learnt about every stage of the wine-making process - from growing to bottling - and tried plenty in the process! Perfect way to spend an evening and we enjoyed every minute.
