Why do we love it?

Crete does not stop surprising us! In addition to the impressive still and sweet wines, it has started to make some extremely good sparkling wines like the Cassiopeia Dourakis Winery, from the rare grape variety Romeiko.

The history of the winery begins in the late 80's, when the renowned winemaker Andreas Dourakis decided to build his own winery, in Alikambos, Crete, in the greater area of Chania. The case is now a family affair, since his children, Evi and Antonis, also work in the winery, each in a different position but with impressive passion and dedication. This means that they never stop experimenting and exploring new aspects of the Cretan terroir. The constant experimentation, in combination with the love for the local varieties, gave birth to the unique sparkling wine Cassiopeia Dourakis Winery. The name is not accidental at all since Cassiopeia is a constellation in the northern part of the sky, named after Queen Cassiopeia, who was famous for her incomparable beauty. As you can imagine Cassiopeia Dourakis Winery has such an incomparable beauty since it is a sparkling wine made with the traditional method, from the very special reddish, Cretan variety Romeiko.

Enjoy it chilled, with great company!
