DESERT WINE

Dourakis Romeiko

This is a wine unlike anything else. It is immensely aromatic with smells of dried herbs, nuts, and baked fruit. It has an oxidative character reminiscent of stewed persimmons and apple cider. Drink “Diaselos” with traditional Cretan wedding pilaf and boiled lamb, charcuterie, and pork dishes.

WHITE WINE

Lihnos Vidiano

During the humble beginnings of our family’s winery, our grandfather, Andreas Dourakis, used a traditional Cretan oil lamp called a lihnos to inspect his wine barrels. The barrels were kept in the dark cellar where no light would enter and disturb the wines as they aged. Lihnos Vidiano is a dry white wine with aromas of peach, pear, and vanilla from subtle oak ageing.

Our story begins here in Alikampos. Our father, Andreas Dourakis, always envisioned his own winery in the village where he was born. His odyssey spanned from Germany where he studied winemaking to wineries in northern Greece where he honed his skills. His return home in 1988 marked the birth of Dourakis Winery. Logari, the first wine he produced here at the winery, was the privately bottled wine in Chania. We continue his vision for innovative and authentic wines that reflect our core values and the land around us.
