About the Wine
If you’re adventurous, you’ll delight in this new find from a place of real antiquity. Vidiano is a rare white grape from the island of Crete, offering up a stylish, textural white with depth.
Fleshy with yellow pear, honeysuckle florals and lovely lemon zestiness, if you’re into comparisons, it’s a little like Pinot Gris with a touch more flair. Like other white grapes revived from near extinction (think Arneis, Viognier), Vidiano’s a tricky variety that doesn’t produce big crops. But dedicated organic growers like Douloufakis, sensitively ferment and age in stainless steel to maintain bright fruit and freshness.
You'll love this distinctive white with the bold spice and smoke of barbecued seafood.
The tradition and history of Douloufakis Family in vineyard cultivation in Crete and production started in 1930 when Dimitris Douloufakis first established professional wine production in old traditional premises.
Nowadays the family's vineyard cultivation and wine-production tradition is continued by the grandson Nikolas Douloufakis.
Nikolas Douloufakis studied winemaking in Alba. Vineyards are certified 100% organic and span over 70 acres of rolling hills in the Dafnes sub-region
The family owned vineyards are certified 100% organic and span over 70 acres of rolling hills in the Dafnes sub-region. Other grapes are sourced from farmers who cultivate their own vineyards in the same area.
