What people are saying about Ano Mera

We really enjoyed visiting the farm. Our guide Babis was super friendly, explained a lot to us about how the farm came about and how it is run. We were able to spend extensive time with the cows, donkeys, sheep and goats and pet and feed them. The subsequent meal was very rich and the best meal we have enjoyed in Mykonos. There was also unlimited wine to drink. All in all a very great activity five stars from us.

We spent a couple of wonderful hours with Stefos, learning about the history of wine making in Mykonos and also learning a little bit about the Greek language. Overall, it was a pleasant outing for a Wednesday afternoon.

This was an amazing experience! Our sommelier, Panagiotis was attentive, knowledgeable and gave us excellent advice to make us more educated about wine.

Learn interesting facts about Greek wines over wine and snacks. Was it worth it for all of us?

Highly recommend! Wonderful experience with an entertaining guide. Thank you!
