Alexakis Winery is a family business. It was founded by Stelios Alexakis, Chemical Engineer -Oenologist, and Sofia Alexaki in the 1970s.
Alexakis Winery is the largest private winery in Crete. The winery has been collaborating for decades with all the vine-growers of the island, maintaining long-term relationships with them, while being fully aware of all the peculiarities of the Cretan Vineyard.
This knowledge enables us to choose vineyards with a special character for each different variety that we vinify. Based on the quality of the raw material, our work starts in the field.

The program includes:
- A guided tour of the winery’s production facilities
