Greek Wine tasting of Douloufakis wines in Crete

 douloufakis winery wine tasting tour in crete

Douloufakis Winery is at the village of Dafnes, 15 km away from Heraklion. The winery, located in the heart of the village, is now in the hands of Nikos Douloufakis, who belongs to the third generation of winemakers in his family.

Followed by a long tradition of viticulture and wine production, this winery continues with reverence its work. The privately owned vineyards of 15 acres are scattered through the area of Dafnes village and there are cultivated indigenous, also international varieties. It is an amazing opportunity for any wine lover to visit the winery where he can go for a guided tour at the production area and learn the secrets of wine production, the process and stages of white, red and rosé vinification.

If it happens for you to visit the winery during the harvest period (middle of August - end of September) you will also be lucky enough to see live the whole process and try the local grape varieties, having a more interactive experience. Then, in a great - designed tasting room, which can accommodate up to 40 people, visitors can taste up to eight wines from local and international grape varieties, accompanied by traditional cretan cheese, rusks and raisins for the dessert wine.

However, this experience does not end here. There are also two organized excursions, one to the wine cellar, where there are about 400 wooden barrels for maturing the wine and another to some places where the visitor can admire the unique panoramic view of vineyards and olive groves that characterize the area.
