Storms are hitting our shores, one stronger than the next, and so we need respite from this terrible weather. Ideally one would jump on a plane to someplace warmer, say the Greek island Crete for example. Unfortunately travel is not on the books for some time, so the closest thing we can think of is grabbing a bottle of great quality Cretan wine and enjoying that in the comfort of our own home.
The Liatiko grape, one of the queens of Cretan grape varieties, makes one of the Lyrarakis Winery’s staple wines. It is produced from vineyards at 650m altitude. The vines are planted in Sitia and Rethymno and provide high-quality low yields, making for a fine, high quality wine.
