Greek grape varieties like Vidiano are a “hidden treasure”  for every connoisseur and wine lover. Vidiano is a white variety, coming from Crete and it is used to produce dry, white wines, sometimes aging in barrels. The existing Vidiano vineyards are few but producers agree on the great potential of the variety, which means that its history shall be written from now on. Vidiano is a variety found mainly around Rethymnon, Crete, and covers small areas, while there is an extremely limited number of vineyards further east, near Heraklion. It gives a yellow-green colored wine, with intense individual and complex aromas, which among others bring in mind ripe peach and apricot, with hints of aromatic herbs and minerality. They are full bodied and have an elevated alcohol content, which effectively compensates for their moderately high acidity. The wines of this variety wonderfully unfold their personality when accompanying pasta with seafood or grilled fish.
