Located in the centre of Crete, the Douloufakis winery is now looked after by third generation Nikos Doulafakis who has put this estate on the world map. All the estates vineyards are situated on hill slopes at an altitude of 350 meters. They are mostly cultivated by hand and cover 20 hectares, all situated within the vine-growing region of Dafnes.
Douloufakis produce wines from Cretan indigenous varieties (Vidiano, Vilana, Muscat White of Spina, Malvasia, Liatiko, Mandilari and Kotsifali) but also international ones such as Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Syrah.
Nikos is almost entirely responsible for the premium representation of Vidiano. The Aspros Lagos (white rabbit) is a medium-bodied, oak and acacia oak barrel fermented expression of this variety, that embodies texture and class. The dry red version of Liatiko is delicious and silky.
Nikos’ understanding of contemporary wine styles and the current industry trends are clearly displayed in these wines and the focus on indigenous varieties shows this line up is Crete’s finest.
“If wine is just a word for you, for me it is the life I’ve chosen!”
“I belong to the third generation of winemakers, following the footsteps of my Grandfather and Father. Wine for me is much more than a simple word… It is my profession, my hobby, my pleasure! Engaged with wine, I am a part of a tradition and a culture that goes back more than four thousand years in this place.”
