GRIFOS White Organic Natural Wine by SILVA Daskalakis Winery

GRIFOS White Organic Natural Wine is made from the local variety Vidiano by the SILVA Daskalakis Winery. This natural wine was produced according to the ancient traditional method of vinification, in large ceramic pots. It was fermented with native yeasts and remained with the grape marc in a 300 litres traditional ceramic pot. The wine was seperated from the marc and transferred into oak barrels, where it remained for 3 months. After that, Grifos was bottled without filtering. Stoppers of 100% plant origin were used.

GRIFOS White Organic Natural Wine has a golden colour with amber undertones, due to its long stay with the grape marc during fermentation. A combination of honey and apricot aromas with the volume of the wine result in an extraordinary explosive effect.

Silva Daskalakis winery decided to produce a natural wine by reviving the ancient Minoan method of vinification. In 2017 Grifos was vinificated and bottled for the first time in a limited amount, about 1000 bottles in total of white, red and rose wine. For those who haven't tasted a natural unfiltered wine of ancient vinification, Grifos will be a unique experience.

Grifos White Organic Natural Wine is an excellent accompaniment to mature cheese varieties and meals with white meat. Enjoy it at 10-12°C.

Without sulfites or any other chemical perservatives. An ideal choice for a vegan diet.

The producer

SILVA Daskalakis Winery

For Daskalakis’ family, the tradition in viticulture and wine production started in 1920. Nowadays, the winery has passed into the hands of the people of the third generation.

Since 2003, they have started a substantial revitalization of the 80 privately owned decares, using integrated organic farming to cultivate the land in limy-clayey soils and in an altitude of 400-600 meters. In an ideal ecosystem that can highlight the richness and the distinctiveness of the Cretan wines in a qualitative way, the family primarily focuses on local varieties, such as Liatiko, Mandilari, Plyto etc, but also on international wine varieties. Moreover, since 2003, the winery has been equipped with machinery in the production and bottling area.

The first official bottling in Daskalakis’ Winery took place in 2005 with the “Liatiko” Dry Wine PDO (Product of Designated Origin) and “Liastos” Naturally Sweet Wine OPAP– (Product of Appellation of Superior Quality). A couple of years later, in 2008, the winery was awarded the “Grand Gold” Medal for Enstikto Red, year 2006 (Varieties of grapes: Syrah-Kotsifali). The fact that they managed to obtain the highest accolade in an International Wine Competition made the whole family feel particularly pleased and proud.

The quantities produced are small, as the aim is to produce high quality products with the hope that they will gain your preference.

Silva Daskalaki Winery is located in Siva, a small village in the Regional Unit of Heraklion, on the 17th km of the National Road Heraklion-Moires.
