About Douloufakis

Douloufakis Winery, steeped in the rich winemaking heritage of Crete, epitomizes a blend of tradition and innovation. Since Dimitris Douloufakis pioneered professional winemaking in Crete in 1930, the family legacy continues under his grandson, Nikolas, who maintains traditional practices while embracing modern techniques in a new facility. Situated in Dafnes, near Iraklio, the winery's privately owned organic vineyards sprawl over 70 acres, reaching elevations of 1,800 feet. With a focus on indigenous varieties like Liatiko, Kotsifali, Vilana, and Vidiano, alongside international grapes like Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chardonnay, Douloufakis showcases the terroir and heritage of the region.

About the Region

Crete, Greece

Crete, the largest of the Greek islands, is a captivating destination for natural winemaking, blending its ancient viticultural traditions with a modern commitment to sustainability. With its diverse microclimates, including coastal plains, mountainous terrain, and inland plateaus, Crete offers a rich tapestry of terroir for cultivating indigenous grape varieties such as Assyrtiko, Vidiano, and Mandilari. Winemakers here are dedicated to organic and biodynamic farming methods, working in harmony with the land to produce grapes of exceptional quality and character. In the cellar, minimal intervention is prized, with spontaneous fermentations and aging in neutral vessels allowing the true expression of the grapes and terroir to shine through. The resulting natural wines from Crete are a testament to the island's pristine beauty and rich winemaking heritage, with their vibrant flavors, elegant textures, and a sense of place that captures the essence of Greece's timeless winemaking tradition.
