Technology and knowledge in oenology easily create good wine. However, when your goal is the best quality, then the winning factor is for the wine to originate from the best vineyard. That is why the Zacharioudakis family happily invested in a Cretan organically cultivated vineyard that was planted on the hill Orthi Petra in South Crete, a location that can guarantee exceptional harvests. Within the 50 acres organically cultivated vineyard, the state-of-the-art winery with its unique architecture was built. Our goal is not the mass production. It is to produce Cretan wines of the finest quality from grapes organically grown in our vineyard and we create wine with respect in accordance with the international high-quality standards. “Domaine Zacharioudakis” was created at the top of the hill “Orthi Petra”. Located in the south part of Crete, at an altitude of 1641 feet, north of ancient Gortina, next to the village of Plouti. In the year 2000, journalist Stelios Zacharioudakis and his spouse, Victoria, began the implementation of their vision to create an area as a tribute to the vineyard and wine, an area to mark the modern and very promising wine history of Crete.
