Let’s start from the beginning!
Sparkling wine is a special type of wine that has a high level of carbon oxide in it. Because of that, the wine is rather fizzy. There are multiple methods to make sparkling wine.
How is Sparkling wine made?
There are 6 major methods by which sparkling wines are produced, each resulting in a different carbonation level and, ultimately, a different style of bubbly!
- The traditional method is the most popular, but also the most expensive production-wise.
- The Tank Method.
- Transfer Method.
- The Ancestral Method.
- Lastly, the Continuous Method.

What makes our sparkling wine different?
Our winery has been experimenting with a variety of sparkling wines since 2011, the first winery on the island of Crete that created this type of wine.
We experimented with the traditional method with Muscat of Spinas, Grenache rouge but Romeiko stole our hearts!
Our sparkling wine is named Cassiopeia, who was the mother of Andromeda in the Greek Mythology, and was known for being extremely beautiful. Cassiopeia is also one of the 48 constellations that were named by Ptolemy, and it’s also included in the 88 constellations that we know to this date. It has that unique W shape that’s created by 5 different stars. You can actually see the constellation on the northern sky all year round, around the 34°N. In the subtropical area it can be seen very clearly from September to November.
Cassiopeia combines the white flower aromas with the ripe fruit and fine bubbles to deliver an extraordinary, unique and exciting texture. It’s the ideal option if you want a unique sparkling wine that fits a multitude of dishes. You can serve Cassiopeia Romeiko with fried chicken, macaroni and cheese, oysters, fried potatoes and white truffles. The main focus for Cassiopeia Romeiko is to bring you a new way to try out and enjoy wines of Crete! All you have to do is to check it out for yourself, and we guarantee you will be very happy with the results and value! Cheers!
