The Douloufakis winery is located in one of the most important wine-producing areas of the prefecture of Heraklion, at the village of Dafnes.

The Douloufakis family has a long association with viticulture and wine production: this began in 1930 and continues until today, with the third generation of the family now in control.

The vineyards, some 20 acres in total, are located at an altitude of about 300 m. They are cultivated mechanically. Several varieties are grown, local as well as international sorts, such as Vilana, Vidiano, Spina Muscat, Malvasia, Mandilari, Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc, Liatiko, Kotsifali, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Syrah, while the winery also purchases grapes from other cooperating producers in the region.

The wines of the Douloufakis winery have won dozens of awards at international competitions in recent years. The gem of the collection is the "White Rabbit" label which you should not miss. 

The winery is open to visitors and upon request and a guided tour and wine tasting in a special room can take place. Book your wine tasting tour here.
