"I belong to the third generation of winemakers in my family, following in the footsteps of my Grandfather and Father. Wine for me is much more than a simple word! It is my profession, my hobby, my pleasure. Engaged with wine, I am a part of a tradition and culture that counts more than four thousand years in this place." Nikos Douloufakis Winemaker
