Welcome to

Karavitakis Estate

Continuing our family’s legacy for 80 years now we have created a boutique winery in Pontikiana Village in Chania, Crete. Our estate consists of 150 acres of vineyards both private and contract ones with carefully selected terroirs for each and every variety. We are producing wines from local grape varietals, international ones and we are experimenting with rare varieties from around the world.

Our winery features modern equipment, 2 winetasting areas and a small church is nestled between beautiful vineyards and olive groves on the hilltops of Kolimbari area, just 30 minutes out of Chania. You are welcome to visit us at any time and taste our wines hosted by our family members. We accept visitors with or without appointments.
