About us

Company details

Alexakis –a family-owned-and-run winery– is the largest winery on the island of Crete. The company is managed by enologist-chemical engineer Stelios Alexakis (founder of the business in the 70’s), Sofia, his wife, and their sons, Lazaros and Apostolos. Both Lazaros and Apostolos are enologists, with degrees from the Universities of Florence, Italy and Fresno, California respectively and are responsible for production, marketing, and the winery’s current evolution.

Alexakis, the largest winery on the island of Crete,
services leading Greek wine producers and has a storage
capacity of 16m liters.

Blending family traditions, know-how and experience with their very own innovative ideas, they plan and implement exciting products and projects, using every drop of their rich and valuable heritage.

Alexakis services leading Greek wine producers and has a storage capacity of 16m liters. It currently exports wines to the U.S.A. with the Alexakis brand and to Russia and China with “private labels”. Over the decades, Alexakis has invested in long-term relationships with most of the vine growers on the island, cultivating strong ties with them and capitalising on their thorough knowledge of the soil, the indigenous varieties, the weather conditions and their intuition during each and every vintage.

Today, Alexakis enjoys the privilege to harvest and secure grapes of remarkable terroir and top quality. Its end products are award-winning bottles, acknowledged and celebrated not just in Crete and around Greece, but also on the world stage.

Raw material and production

At Alexakis, we began working on a contract farming basis some six years ago, with great results, both for grape growers and ourselves.
