Daskalaki Irini Silva Winery, History Dating Back to the 1920s

Daskalaki Irini Silva Winery is situated in Siva, a charming village in Heraklion. Surrounded by rolling hills, Crete’s wine regions boast various crops, such as vineyards and olive groves. Dominated by the unmatched aroma, the territory provides excellent soils and microclimate to produce the estate’s flagship red wines.

The third generation of Daskalaki Irini Silva Winery, following in their forefather’s footsteps, operates wine production with complete dedication and passion.


Revitalization and Modernization in the Winery

Daskalakis started the tradition of grape cultivation in the 1920s. Nowadays, the third generation, following in their forefather’s footsteps, runs the winery. Over the years, the family has been working with great dedication and innovative ideas.

In 2003, the winery revitalized and replanted their 80 acres of vineyards using organic viticulture methods. In the same year, new machinery was also introduced in the cellar and bottling area. Since then, the main focus of the Daskalaki Family has been on the production of luscious red and white wines, made within the appellation of Crete.


Cultivated Grape Varieties in the Vineyards

Covered with peculiar topography, the estate cultivates their vineyards with many indigenous and international grape varieties. Local whites include Vidiano, Plyto, Athiri, Thrapsathiri, Muscat of Spina, and Malvasia, along with local reds Liatiko, Mandilari, and Kotsifali. International whites include Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Semillon, together with reds, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah. The family combined local Kotsifali and international Syrah for the creation of one of their classic wines. Grapes are handpicked upon ripening, and only the best berries moved further for pressing and controlled fermentation.
