In the heart of the Domain an outstanding winery was constructed with respect to the environment and from natural materials like rocks from the vineyard and the wider area. Within the winery there were established the production stations, the bottling and storage place, underground cellars and a fully equipped chemical analyses laboratory.
The winery is designed in different levels in order to use gravity for the production processes and to avoid artificial pressures that damage the stum. Additionally, the smooth pressures of spirit press machines, the underground ma- turing cellars in stable temperatures, the ideal bottling conditions with lack of oxygen and the proper storage of the bottles in an underground bottle cellar are guaranteeing our high quality products.
The Domain Paterianakis is located in a semi-mountainous area of an approximate altitude 600 m, near to the “Melesses” village of the Municipality of Nikos Kazantzakis of Heraklion Prefecture on Crete Island.
The wider region of “Peza”, where the Domain belongs, is reputed since ancient times for the excellent quality and the exceptional taste of the wines that were produced there.
The vineyards of the Domain belong to a biologically sensitive area appellation of origin Peza of high quality.
