Description

In 2000, journalist Stelios Zacharioudakis and his wife Victoria began to realize their vision: to make a space that will honor the vineyards and wine, a milestone in the modern, promising wine history of Crete. Zacharioudakis Winery was thus established a top the hill called “Orthi Petra”, at an altitude of 500 m. on the north of the archaeological site of ancient Gortyna, at the settlement of Plouti in southern Crete 45 km south of Heraklion.

Since grapevines are now cultivated all over the world, in many cases wine has been turned into an industrialized product. So, the question is: what does a winemaker want to offer in a glass of wine and what does the one tasting it expect to find and does she/he desire?

What we, the Zacharioudakis family, want is that in every glass of our wine you can see our passion and zeal, you can take in the energy and aromas of Cretan nature, and feel the ancient connection of our land with wine, which is the gift of the gods to humans!
