Grape growing on Crete dates back thousands of years to the Minoan civilization. Due to the tumultuous history of Crete, we haven’t had the opportunity to study the intricacies of our terroir- the sense of place created by the interaction of soils, climate, and topography. Since 1980, we have been studying our soils and refining our knowledge of our vineyards. Most of our vineyards are planted in clay and limestone soils which helps us grow incredible grapes.
