Douloufakis Vidiano sparkling grape wine

"Sparkling Douloufakis"
Douloufakis Sparkling wine

Pure | Complex | Toasty

The wine is almost straw-like in colour and when carefully poured, a cascade of silver bubbles will surround the glass and dance in a sparkling creamy foam, creating a complex aroma, reminiscent of apples, apricots, honey and beeswax. It is a vibrant, refreshing, sparkling wine with a long aftertaste.

BRUT - Méthode Traditionnelle



Our Sparkling Wine was released in 2015 under the brand name "Sparkling Douloufakis".

Douloufakis Sparkling White Dry wine

Serving Sparkling Douloufakis wine

We recommend placing the wine in an ice bucket for half an hour prior to serving at a temperature of 9-10°C.
It is a sparkling wine with a range of possibilities: as a simple aperitif on a fine summer’s day or an unexpected celebration, but truly, this wine will come into its own if you team it with food.
It would be an excellent companion to oysters, scallops, sushi, mussels or lobster dripping with a bisque sauce. If seafood doesn’t appeal to you, then most chicken dishes would gain from being accompanied by this exciting sparkling wine.

Sparkling Douloufakis White Wine Vinification

The base wine had the ideal attributes for producing sparkling wine by the traditional method. The base wine traits were high acidity, low pH (to withstand ageing), neutral aromatic profile and strong body. Followed by the second fermentation in the bottle, the wine remained on lees (sur lies fines) for 24 more months.
The disgorging was completed in January 2023 by selecting a liqueur d`expedition to give us a brut wine.

Douloufakis Sparkling White Tasting Notes

Tasted in Country Tasted by Published on Vintage Wine tasting notes
2017 U.K. Julia Harding, MW 2013 100% Vidiano. Herby, dense but fresh. This would be a good food wine. Dry, fine mousse and a herbal citrus finish. Nicely done to get the fizz yet keep the varietal character.
2016 Cyprus Γιάννος Κωνσταντίνου, Οινογράφος- Yiannos Konstantinou, Wine Writer 2013 Μετά τον τιμιότατο Κρητικό, καμωμένο από τις ποικιλίες Βηλάνα, Πλυτό και Δαφνί, ήρθε σήμερα να προστεθεί στις προτάσεις μου ένα ακόμη λευκό, αφρώδες αυτή τη φορά, από την ηρωική πάλι Κρήτη. Το ξηρό αφρώδες του οινοποιείου Δουλουφάκης, από τον τρύγο του 2013, φτιαγμένο αποκλειστικά από σταφύλια ενός ακόμη ποικιλιακού αστέρα του νησιού, που δεν είναι άλλος από το Βιδιανό. Οινοποιημένο με την παραδοσιακή μέθοδο της ζύμωσης στη φιάλη, το Αφρώδες του Δουλουφάκη είναι, κοντολογίς, το καλύτερο κρασί της κατηγορίας που παράγεται αυτή τη στιγμή σε ολόκληρη την Ελλάδα. Πλούσιο και φίνο στη μύτη, με καθάρια αρώματα κόρας ψωμιού, βουτύρου, ξηρών καρπών και κίτρινων φρούτων. Εκφραστικό γευστικά, με ισορροπημένη την παρουσία του ανθρακικού και μια οξύτητα που ανεβάζει το σύνολο, είναι ένα αφρώδες εφάμιλλο μιας καλής αχρονολόγητης σαμπάνιας. Θερμά συγχαρητήρια στον παραγωγό. Πιείτε το μέχρι το 2020.
2016 Greece Γιάννης Καρακάσης (Yannis Karakasis), MW 2013 Aiming at exploring the high potential of the Vidiano variety, Douloufakis goes one step further by releasing a sparkling methode tradionnelle vintage 2013 version, with two years on the lees which is one of the longest maturation periods a Greek sparkling wine has seen. Fruit was sourced from vineyards at 600 m that possessed the desired nature for sparkling wine production, it was disgorged in May 2016 and released few days ago at a domestic retail price of 16.75 euros. With this effort Douloufakis tries to find a fine line between the floral character of the variety and the toasty notes released by autolysis. The result taking into consideration it is the first vintage is just outstanding. Tight nose opening up revealing a stone fruit core along floral, spa -like notes with evident autolytic yeasty aromas. Medium bodied with fine mousse on the palate balancing fine the fruity with the brioche like flavours, finishes very pure and clean. Ambitious for the next 5-8 years. Roast chicken, pork, lime grilled prawns will do the match. So it is three out of three for Douloufakis and Vidiano, and that makes me curious what will be next...
