Although production on the island of Crete centres around olive oil, it is slowly retuning back to its roots of wine production. One of these wineries turning back the tide is the family run estate of Diamantakis, founded in 2007 by Nikolaos G. Diamantakis and his sons Ioannis, Michalis and Zacharias. The first two are third-generation vine-growers who have extensive experience in viticulture and are in charge of the winery’s vineyards whereas Zacharias, having studied oenology, is involved in the process of winemaking and promoting the wine. The region has a long history in vine cultivation and the production of wines and spirits. The love and passion of the Diamantakis family is for high quality wine, their long tradition in viticulture being the motivation to create a small winery in the area. Working predominantly with indigenous varieties like Vidiano, Mandilaria, Liatiko, Malvasia di Candia as well as Assyrtiko and Syrah, they strongly believe in the potential and ability of the local varieties to give exceptional wines.
