Our choice of these two grape varieties was not random at all. Each grape variety separately attributes in a
different way in the wine profile. Vidiano offers all the aromas and complexity whereas Assyrtiko gives the acidity, which
contributes to a pleasant wine with high aging of potential.

combined elaborately with vanilla, nuts and oak. In the mouth, full bodied with crisp acidity that integrates nicely allowing the
fruit to be properly expressed. The finish is long as leaving you a wonderful aftertaste with apricot and vanilla hints.

About us

Company details

DIAMANTAKIS winery was founded in 2007 by the family members of Nikolaos G. Diamantakis: Ioannis, Michalis and Zacharias. The first two ones are third-generation vine-growers who have extensive experience in viticulture and are in charge of the winery’s vineyards; whereas Zacharias, having studied oenology, is involved in the process of winemaking and promoting the wine. Winery is a new, modern producer of quality wines in Crete. It is located 24km southwest of the city of Heraklion in the heart of the province Malevizi, outside the village of Kato Assites in the eastern foothills of Psiloritis at an altitude of 450 meters.  The region has a long history in vine cultivation and the production of wines and spirits.

The love and passion of Diamantakis family for high quality wine, their long tradition in viticulture and the 70 acres of private owned land, was the motivation to create a small winery in the area. The grape varieties cultivated are Greek, local and international. During the spring 2010, other 25 acres of land are planted and arranged in terraces.
Family’s purpose is the production of fine wines which can be blended in perfetcly with the unique macroclimate of the area. The exploitation of the local grape varieties such as Vidiano and Mandilaria, is the main target of Diamantakis family. Τhey strongly believe in the potential and ability of the local varieties to give exceptional wines.

We are waiting for you in our stand!
