the Winery

The winery of Mediterra lies in a building ground of 15.000m2 in the village Kounavi of the Nikos Kazantzakis municipality in the prefecture of Heraklion in Crete.
The winery’s facilities consist of the area where the wine grapes are collected and processed for vinification, the underground storage and wine ageing area, the two wine cellars with the oak barrels and barriques, the bottling facility and the area for the preservation of the final products.
The storage capacity reaches 19.000hl in stainless steel and oak tanks, while the two wine cellars dispose of over 500 oak barrels (300lt) and barriques (225lt).
The vinification area includes transportation lines and mechanical crushers for the collection of the wine grapes, a heat exchanger for the must, three pneumatic presses, stainless steel and oak tanks and an automatic system controlling the temperature and the development of the alcoholic fermentation.

the Company

In the village Kounavi, the heart of the Appellation Zone of Peza in Crete, since 1973 we make wine from the island’s indigenous grape varieties, based on our knowledge and passion. We bring to light the special characteristics of international grape varieties while exploiting the viniculture potential of our homeland.
The name of the village where our winery is situated proves our long winemaking tradition, since it originates from the historical wine cellars “Kanaves” that are found in the islands of the Archipelago (Aegean Sea).
