The tradition and history of the Douloufakis Family in vineyard cultivation and production started in 1930 when the grandfather Dimitris Douloufakis first established the professional wine production in old traditional premises. Nowadays the vineyard cultivation and wine-production tradition of the Family is continued by the grandson Nikolas Douloufakis. Having studied Oenology in Italy (Alba Intituto Agrario-Spezialitato in Diviticultura e Enologia) he has proceeded to the renewing of the wine premises and to the production of superior quality wines from his own vineyards.
Douloufakis Winery vineyards are situated in hill slopes at an altitude of 350 meters and the cultivation is done by mechanical means. They cover 10 hectares and are located within the vine region of Dafnes, in Greece. The vine varieties planted are: Vilana, Vidiano, Muscat White (of Spina), Malvasia, Mandilari, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Liatiko, Kotsifali, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sangiovese and Syrah. Apart from privately owned vineyards, grapes are sourced from farmers who cultivate their own vineyards in the same area.
