WINES
Natural wines

A unique range of “natural” wines, without the addition of sulphite, which reflect authentic Crete in the best possible way.

3,14

The 3.14 series of minimal intervenions was the lifelong dream of Emmanuela Paterianaki. She had been experimenting since 2014 with making wines using organic grapes, so as to showcase in the best possible way the natural cycle that the grape undergoes each year to give us this magical wine treasure. Hence the name 3.14, which derives from the famous mathematical Pi.

The fact that this number is an indivisible highlights the diversity of wine eve-ry year when no interventions are made to it. This showcases in the best possible way the terroir of our wine-growing region. The 3.14 is produced organically in a limited number of bottles of white (Vidiano), rosé (Kotsifali, Syrah) and red (Kotsifali).

Red – Organic cultivation and wine-making with the famous French Syrah, for a different attitude. It has an intense colour while the nose is a condensation of red fruits, chocolate, coffee, cashews and spices, competing with the notes of vanilla and baked bread. A rich wine with an oily character. A wine that promises duration over time.

VIDIANO
The white diva

The Vidiano is a native Cretan variety that has been revived thanks to the efforts of the island’s last generation of winemakers and winegrowers. For many, it is the white diva of the Cretan vineyard. Its cultivation outside Crete is a sign of what the future may hold. The organic Vidiano wine of the Domaine Paterianakis is produced at low tem-peratures, has rich fruit aromas and a characteristic oily flavour.

The 2018 Vidiano was described as the best Vidiano of Greece during a blind tasting at the Thessaloniki International Wine and Spirits Competition.

MELISSOKIPOS
A pure Cretan blend from the native varieties of Kotsifali and Mantilari. It has a deep ruby colour with a noble bouquet of aromas and pleasant velvety tannins. Rounded off with notes of jam and baked bread.
The name MELISSOKIPOS derives from the location of the vine area, where two main varieties of grapes are planted and from which this particular wine is made, the Kotsifali and the Mantilari. This vine area is located in the most westerly point of the Domaine Paterianakis, on a slope at an altitude of 500 metres, filled with herbs such as oregano, sage, thyme and lavender, plants that are much loved by bees, making it a true “bee garden” or “melissokipos”.

Vintage Wines
The Domaine’s first wine from 1997, the PDO Peza, is made from the red varieties of Crete, the Kotsifali and the Mantilari, from vines that are over 60 years old.

DOMAINE PATERIANAKIS
The Domaine’s flagship
Produced from the dominant red varieties of the island, the Kotsifali and the Mantilari, and with the Peza Protected Designation of Origin. The young Kotsifali has an aroma of red fruits, especially tomato.

Whoever has found themselves in the Domaine’s winery during the harvesting season will know how intense this aroma is. With aging, the aromas become earthy and animalesque, with the aroma of tomato still dominating! The Kotsifali, which is found alone or in combination with other varieties, is considered one of the up-and-coming Greek red varieties.

MOSCHATO SPINAS
The surprise
The small-grape treasure of Crete, the Moschato Spinas surprises with its fine aroma and delicate taste. The Moscha-to Spinas is a rare native variety that has been showcased by the Domaine Paterianakis. It has a soft yellow colour with an intense varietal floral character of white flowers, soft and fresh rose petals, jasmine and violets.
Its elegant and harmonious mouthfeel, with dominant sweet notes of muscat, make it a pleasant and refreshing choice. This is a new and dynamic va-riety that one can truly fall in love with.

Spirits
A double-distilled organic tsikoudia, from the Kotsifali or the Vidiano, which is strongly associated with the “Paradise” of the great Cretan author Nikos Kazantzakis.

PARADISE
The Paterianakis family Tsikoudia, from either the Kotsifali or the Vidiano, is associated with the “Paradise” of the great Cretan author Nikos Kazantzakis, showcasing our authentic culture in a unique way. By adopting the principles of organic cultivation and winemaking, we have created, with love and graciousness, our own Paradise.

After careful sorting, we keep only the pomace of our organic grapes and some of their juice. This is then fermented in special tanks according to the organic methods of winemaking that we apply to our other wines. Finally, we perform a double distillation from which we keep only the heart of the distillate.
