Douloufakis Greek Vineyards in Crete
Our privately owned vineyards are situated on hill slopes at an altitude of 350 meters and the cultivation is done by hands as well as by mechanical means. They cover 20 hectares and are located within the vine region of Dafnes, on the island of Crete, in Greece. We have planted several varieties such as: Vilana, Vidiano, Muscat White (of Spina), Malvasia, Mandilari, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Liatiko, Kotsifali, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Syrah.
Apart from the privately owned vineyards, grapes are sourced from farmers in our area, with whom we have a long and stable partnership. These vineyards cover 25 hectares and are under our supervision in order to get grapes of good quality.
This is because, even if we have state-of-the-art equipment, it is not enough to produce excellent quality wine, unless we have excellent grapes.
