Lyrarakis - Winery

On Crete there are few families who are not involved in wine making. For the inhabitants of the island wine has been, and will remain, the most valuable among the products that the Cretan soil offers. Brought up in this environment, the founders of Lyrarakis Estate decided, in 1966, to professionally deal with the production of wine. In 1966, they founded the company under the name of ALAGNIOS WINERY-LYRARAKIS BROS & A. PAVLAKIS G.P.. It operated under this form until 1977, when it was converted to S.A. under the name of G.E.A. S.A. AGRICULTURAL ENTERPRISES OF ALAGNIO. The family has, also, planted vineyards with some of the highest quality local wine varieties, namely the white Vilana, and the red ones, Kotsifali and Mandilaria. The vineyard planted with Vilana constituted a sypplying center for the rest area with tendrils for self rooting plants. Later, with the appearance of phylloxera, it provided the cooperation and the private nurseries of the island with Vilana εμβόλια.
