Our family and this place is everything to us.
Sinadinakis winery located in Archanes (Greek(Gr): Αρχάνες), a traditional settlement located in the heart of a major wine-making area of Heraklion, Crete. Archaeological evidence found in the area proving evidence of the uniqueness of Archanes location and climate as one of the most important wine-growing regions since the Minoan era.
In 1991 we planned our first vineyard. We are family winery with passion for the winemaking. Our organic wines produced and bottled from the enologist Evangelos Sinadinakisom (Greek: Ευάγγελος Συναδινάκης) and his family members. We cultivate in the family vineyard several local varieties, combined with the international varieties.
The secret of cretan wines Sinadinakis is its magnificent geolocation: our vineyards are located on sunny slopes, at the foot of the sacred mountain Giouchtas. Kotsifali (a variety that can be found only in the area of Arhanes and Peza), and the Aegean varieties Assyrtiko and Vidiano, combined with international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc. Sinadinakis vineyards are located in the zone of Archanes and Peza. The vineyards are cultivated only with organic farming methods. The crop is mild, yields of 2 to 2.5 kg / vine (600-700 kg / acre). The harvest is done manually in the morning hours, by the family members and our friends.
An organic wine is a wine made from grapes that were grown using organic methods, without the use of artificial or synthetic ingredients, chemicals and fertilizers (such as herbicides, pesticides, GMOs, etc.), to maintain the natural microclimate of the soil. To control weeds and pests, we work with nature, not against it, by improving the biodiversity of their vineyard. Thus, the vineyard becomes a self-regulating, natural ecosystem, which is able to deal with internal problems and eliminates the need for artificial and potentially toxic chemicals.
