The tradition and history of Douloufakis Family in vineyard cultivation and wine production begins in 1930, when the grandfather Dimitris Douloufakis first professionally produced wine in old traditional premises. Douloufakis wines are produced in Dafnes, a village very near Heraklion, Crete, Greece. Their privately owned vineyards are situated on hill slopes, the cultivation is done both by hand and mechanical means. Apart from the privately owned vineyards, grapes are sourced from farmers in their area. Those vineyards cover 25 hectares and are under their supervision in order to get excellent quality grapes. Douloufakis Sparkling is a white brut wine made by Traditional Method and it comes from Vidiano grapes. The initial classic white wine was aimed to make a base wine suitable for producing sparkling wine by the Méthode Champenoise, which produced a neutral aromatic profile and strong body. Then, a second fermentation takes place in the bottle and wine remains on lees for 24 months. Disgorging is completed by selecting a liqueur d’expedition to give us a brut wine.
