Domaine Paterianakis tour and wine tasting

The open to visitors Domaine Paterianakis winery in Melesses village, in PDO Peza zone, just 18 km from Heraklion centre (about 20’ drive), is a family business and, nowadays, the third generation of owners is in charge.

This is the first winery in Crete with organic cultivations of indigenous (Mandilari, Vidiano, Vilana, Mandilari, etc.) and international (Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet, etc.) varieties.

In one of the largest vineyards on the island –it is spread over an area of 200 sq.m.– you may be taken on a tour of its facilities, learn everything about the produced wines and even taste some of those, as there is wine tasting after the tour.

Leaving the winery, be sure to visit the shop and buy some of its wines or Cretan products, such as olive oil, cheeses, meats, rusks, soap, etc.
