The island of Crete is rediscovering its indigenous grape varieties. Here are three varieties and producers we highly recommend. But we recommend you read our Report 92: Crete’s Wine Revolution for our reviews of many more unique and delicious wines.
Douloufakis Aspros Lagos PGI Crete: An excellent example of Crete’s best white grape variety, Vidiano.
Lyrarakis Dafni Psarades PGI Crete: The Lyrarakis family has taken the lead in discovering and replanting Crete’s indigenous varieties like the excellent but rare white variety Dafni. But almost all the wines Lyrarakis produces are very very good.
Manousakis Nostos Assyrtiko Crete: Assyrtiko is now grown all over Greece, and this one is both delicious and great value.
