City of Origin:
Yiannis and Manos Pateromihelakis
They own 5ha of organically farmed vineyards in Kissamos region of western Chania. The majority of grapes are coming from the vineyard “Domata (Tho-ma-ta) at an altitude of 300 metres overlooking the Aegean sea and benefiting from the north cool breezes which help in perfect ripening conditions and retaining acidity in the grapes. The winery is producing wines from Romeiko, Mavrotragano and Assyrtiko grapes.
Pateromihelakis “π” Winery is a newly founded winery with a long family tradition in viticulture, winemaking and in organic olive oil making. The family was a very important wine making producer in the western part of Crete until the second world war. Yiannis and Manos, the twin brothers of the family, decided in 2005 to revive the legacy and started experimental vinifications of Romeiko, the most significant indigenous grape variety of Chania prefecture, and also Mavrotragano, a very important black variety of the Cyclades.
