The winemaking philosophy is to create wines which showcase the quality of the indigenous varieties. Following a thorough inspection at the winery, the grapes were preserved for 24 hours at very low temperatures. The grapes were destemmed and then cold maceration took place for approximately six hours. The free-run juice was removed without pressing. After a cold settling, the wine was fermented with carefully selected yeasts which highlight the aromatic characters of this variety. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks for 10 to 12 days at a controlled temperature of 15°C
to retain the characteristics of the Vidiano grape.

Winery

The indigenous variety of Vidiano (pronounced Vid-ee-an-O) is grown in the Dafnes subregion of Heraklion, in a vineyard located in a semi mountainous area at an altitude of 400 to 500 metres above sea level. At this elevation, the cool Aegean summer breezes refresh the vines during the summer, when temperatures can reach 35°C. The cooler nights can drop to 15°C and this diurnal temperature difference retains natural acidity in the grapes, balancing this rich and intensely aromatic variety. The calciumrich, clayish soils offer good nutrients and excellent water retention to nourish the vines through the hot, dry summers. The low-yielding vines are trained according to the Royat method and produce just nine hectolitres per hectare. The soils, very low yielding vines and the distinctive microclimate, combine to create a unique terroir in which the Vidiano variety thrives.
