Idaia Winery, Producing High-Quality Wines in Crete

Nestled wonderfully among the mountains of Psiloritis, in the heart of vineyards, Idaia Winery is situated in the charming village of Venerato. Idaia’s careful selection of grapes and processing under controlled temperature conditions leads to the production of the highest quality Cretan wines.

With remarkable experience & achievements, the oenologists at Idaia Winery have revitalized the ancient winepresses to deliver world-class wines.

Biodiversity of Great Importance in Grape Cultivation

The winemaking history of the Malevizi region is ancient, dating back to the times of Romans. Venerato has been a renowned wine region for centuries, and its wines were named under the Malvazia label. The oenologists – Laderos Vasilis and Volitaki Calliope – have revitalized the ancient winepresses to deliver top-class wines with remarkable experience & achievements.

With enormous respect for biodiversity, the estate cultivates an extensive range of grapes, including Vidiano, Vilana, and Thraspathiri, to produce top-notch white wines. It also grows traditional local vine varieties such as Liatiko, Mandilari, and Kotsifali to produce red wines. Some European grapes, such as Syrah, Grenache, and Cabernet Sauvignon, are combined to create new combinations. Along with luscious red and white wines, Idaia Winery also crafts excellent rosé and dessert wines.

The Family’s Philosophy

The family has uniquely combined traditional methods with innovative ideas that attract wine-overs from worldwide to pay a visit. Even in the wine cellar, the owners have introduced advanced machinery to keep the wines’ aroma and organoleptic characteristics intact.
