Buy Karavitakis Winery Vidiano Klima
Wine Advocate 87 points - The 2013 Klima white is all unoaked Vidiano, and a nice one it is. Friendly and beautifully balanced, it is well-integrated on all fronts, with a tasty and gentle finish that manages to linger in spite of its genteel demeanor. This is not overly concentrated and it comes around quickly, but it is charming in its youth with nice texture and a friendly demeanor that should make everyone happy - if the wine is encountered young and fresh. Drink now-2017  (Apr 2014)

Karavitakis Family has been involved in the winemaking business for 4 generations already. The great grandfather was the owner of major vineyard and olive tree plantation around the area of Pontikiana village in Chania. Back then one type of red wine was produced from an indigenous grape varietal of Chania region: Romeiko, and also big amounts of Soultana raisins. With time vineyards were getting bigger and enriched with many more varietals. The business was expanding till today’s owner Manolis Karavitakis reorganized everything, built the new winery in 1996 just a few hundred meters from the old one and tried to focus both in local and international grape varieties. The result was a very rich portfolio of wines, together with limited production experimental ones. Today his son Nikos Karavitakis is running sales, exports and the winery tastings program and together they cooperate for producing and releasing wines which will offer a taste of the Cretan terroir. The winery’s philosophy is simple. Grow local and international grape varietals, but offer a cretan terroir background to them so that somebody can understand the essence of producing wines on the island of Crete. Modern viticultural methods are used and effort is given to apply minimum forces during winemaking. The result is wines without edges but yet very interesting for a tasting palate.
