Silva Daskalaki Winery is located in Siva, a small village in the
Regional Unit of Heraklion, on the 17th km of the National Road
Here, viticulture and wine production have been the local traditions for a very long time.
Siva is a picturesque village in a rural area. In the asymmetrical hills of the region, we can find different kinds of plantations, such as rich vineyards and olive groves.
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.
