The Klados Winery is a small family business, that was started in 1997.
The founder, Manolis Klados, is a qualified Chemist and trained master Oenologist, with 30 years experience in the industry, who pioneered wine making in the prefecture of Rethymno. He is now being succeeded by his son, Stelios, who grew up in the business and who is a graduate chemist from the University of Crete and a master Oenologist from the University of Piacenza - Italy and daughter Magda, who is a graduate IT engineer, who does the company accounting and administration.
The first winery was set up in small rented premises, located in the outskirts of the city of Rethymno, with a production capacity of 20,000 Litres/year, that grew over time. The early activity was mainly Bag-in-Box and the first serious consumer branding with bottled products started in 2002.
Business grew steadily and as the existing production capacity was outgrown, the business was relocated in 2007, in purpose built family owned premises, with a capacity of 100.000 Litres/year, in the area of Panormo, 25 km east of the city of Rethymno.
The new winery was equipped with modern technology, in both wine making and bottling, enabling the processing of greater volumes and higher standards of quality.
The winery is surrounded by our new organic vineyard, planted with the famous Rethymnian white grape variety of ''Vidiano''.
We continue to market out wine both, to business, bag in box and to consumers, in bottles. We are a boutique winery and strive to make superior quality wines, that would intrigue our demanding consumers with their complex aromas, attractive colours and great tastes.
We are vinifying, the better known local red varieties of Liatiko, Kotsifali and the noble ones of, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.
On whites, we are vinifying the excellent local varieties of Vidiano, Vilana, Plito, Thrapsathiri, Muscat of Spina, and the noble Sauvignon Blanc.
