We booked this for our guests that flew to Rethymno just for our wedding. For the 7 of us we booked the 11 wine tasting and finger foods. The wine, the wine expert and the finger foods were fantastic. The only downside was us having hangovers from our wedding the day before. We went to House Of Wine on 5th October. We would definitely return. Highly recommended. But be warned you have a glass of wine each tasting not a shot then spit it out!!
