Karavitakis winery is located in Pontikiana village at Kolymvari area, approximately 25 km distance from the city center of Chania.
The boutique family winery has been operating for over 80 years. The estate consists of 150 acres of vineyards both private and contract ones with carefully selected terroirs for each and every variety. The wine production is from local grape varietals, international ones and we are experimenting with rare varieties from around the world. The estate vineyards consist of 30000 square meters private owned land and also many smaller estates which belong to exclusive associates.
Karavitakis winery is characterized by constant experimentation with new products and techniques. Our wine portfolio consists of white wines made from: Soultanine, Malagouzia, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc and red wines from the varieties: Cabernet, Syrah , Merlot, Grenage Rouge, Kotsifali, Sangiovese, Refosco, Nebbiolo and Tempranillo. The estate’s main effort is: take the most out of each variety. That’s why after the treatment throughout the year we decide the appropriate time for the harvest by following the maturation progress and the experience from previous crops with similar conditions.
