Vidiano is one of the most popular white grapes in Crete however it’s very difficult to find outside of Greece hence we were very lucky to secure some! Hints of flowers, white peach, apricot and nectarine on the nose. Much like high quality French Viognier, with its rich stone fruit mid-palate and plenty of crisp acidity to keep it fresh. Full bodied, well balanced with the fruit having an impressively long finish. Delicious! Best enjoyed with soft cheeses, grilled fish, chicken and vegetables. Classic white vinification with fermentation at 18°C in stainless steel tanks. Drink now or can be cellared for up to 5 years.

The tradition and history of the Douloufakis family in vineyard cultivation and production started in 1930 when grandfather Dimitris Douloufakis first established a professional winery in the village of Dafnes in Crete. Today the business is continued by Dimitris’ grandson Nikolas Douloufakis who, having studied oenology in Italy (at Alba Intituto Agrario-Spezialitato in Diviticultura e Enologia) has renewed the production of superior quality wines from his own vineyards. The Douloufakis Winery vineyards are situated on hilly slopes at an altitude of 350 metres. They cover 10 hectares and are located within the region of Dafnes. The vine varieties planted are Vilana, Vidiano, Muscat of Spina, Malvasia, Mandilari, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Liatiko, Kotsifali, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese, and Syrah. Apart from privately owned vineyards, grapes are sourced from local farmers who cultivate their own vineyards in the same area. Douloufakis are famous for the production of the single-vineyard ‘Aspros Lagos’ Vidiano, a white cretan variety, as well as the PDO Liatiko red
