CabernetSauvignon: The most famous French red variety of grapes. It is known as "the king of the varieties". It grows all over the world and it ranks among the top varieties which are ideal for ageing. The produced wine is distinguished by its bright red colour, its rich flavour, its high content in tannins and its particular intense aroma.

Liatiko:One of the oldest red varieties grown of Crete. The wine that comes from this variety is distinguished by the high degree of alcohol, the softness in taste, the speed of ageing and the intense aroma and the lack of colour.

An intense red colour and a complex aroma of red fruits, spices, chocolate and coffee characterize this wine. Its rich flavour in combination with the soft tannins and the balanced acidity can be distinguished in the mouth. The aftertaste is long lasting and intense.

Klados Winery

The Klados Winery is a small family business, that was started in 1997. The founder, Manolis Klados, is a qualified Chemist and trained master Oenologist, with 35 years experience in the industry, who pioneered wine making in the prefecture of Rethymno. He is now being succeeded by his son, Stelios, who grew up in the business and who is a graduate chemist from the University of Crete (2009) and a master Oenologist from the University of Piacenza – Italy (2014). The first winery was set up in small rented premises, located in the outskirts of the city of Rethymno, with a production capacity of 20,000 Litres/year, that grew over time. The early activity was mainly Bag-in-Box and the first serious consumer branding with bottled products started in 2002. Business grew steadily and as the existing production capacity was outgrown, the business was relocated in 2007, in purpose built family owned premises, with a capacity of 100.000 Litres/year, in the area of Panormo, 25 km east of the city of Rethymno. The new winery was equipped with modern technology, in both wine making and bottling, enabling the processing of greater volumes and higher standards of quality. The winery is surrounded by our new organic vineyard, planted with the famous Rethymnian white grape variety of ''Vidiano''. We are a boutique winery and strive to make superior quality wines, that would intrigue our demanding consumers with their complex aromas, attractive colours and great tastes. We are vinifying, the better known local red varieties of Liatiko, Kotsifali and the noble ones of, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. On whites, we are vinifying the excellent local varieties of Vidiano, Vilana, Thrapsathiri, Muscat of Spina, and the noble Sauvignon Blanc.
