The tradition and history of the Douloufakis family in vineyard cultivation and wine production began in 1930, when the grandfather Dimitris Douloufakis was the first who professionally produced wine in old traditional premises. Douloufakis wines are produced in Dafnes, a village close to 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 also sourced from farmers in their area. Those vineyards cover 25 hectares and are under their supervision in order to get excellent quality grapes. Vidiano Amphora was released in 2016. It was vinified like the wines they made in Crete 4,000 years ago, in a 250-300 liter clay amphora, without the addition of yeasts, with minimal addition of sulphite. After 3 months, extraction and separation took place, then the wine remained for 2 more months in the jar and finally matured for 4 months in stainless steel tanks. The result is an unfiltered white wine with noticeable turbidity in which you may also encounter a thin layer of sediment.
