The grape varieties cultivated are Vidiano, Assyrtiko, Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, Mandilari, Syrah and Chardonnay. During spring 2010, other 25 acres of land were planted and arranged in terraces.
The fruit of the first bottling came in 2009 with 2 fresh wines, called Prinos White and Prinos Syrah. Since then, other four labels are added; Diamantopetra Red, Diamantakis Vidiano, Prinos Rosé and Diamantopetra White.
Family’s purpose is the cultivation of grape varieties which can be perfectly blended with the unique macroclimate of the area for the production of the finest wines. The exploitation of the local grape varieties such as Vidiano, Liatiko and Mandilari, is the main target of Diamantakis family. Τhey strongly believe in the potential and ability of the local varieties to give exceptional wines.
