Sisters Emmanouela and Niki Paterianaki, are passionate about using indigenous Cretan grapes. Thrapsathiri is an ancient variety, and late harvested with some oak influence and paired with Sauvignon to give it an extra bite of acidity. This wine is a real surprise with tropical fruits, pineapple, and ripe stone fruits — a subtle taste of butter and very refreshing.

Winemaker

Domaine Paterianakis

"Sisters Emmanouela and Nicky Paterianaki oversee the winery that was founded by their grandfather Manolis some 50 years ago and revolutionized by their father Georgios, an engineer and pioneer of organic wine in the 90s. Today the winery is committed to biodynamic practices and what the sisters refer to as a “pure” approach. Emmanouela Paterianaki, who has a degree from the University of Athens in oenology, has been quoted in using the word “Restless” to describe the island’s next-generation wine influencers who are reviving ancient indigenous grapes. Nicky, who studied chemical engineering at the University of Athens, describes their wines as having “strong personality.” Their wines are natural with no use of chemicals or synthetic fertilizers. In other words, no soil, water and atmosphere contamination. Their respect for the land combined with modern winemaking methods born of family tradition is evident in the beautiful expression of their wine."
