The Peza Union is located in one of the most important wine-making areas of Crete, with access to 7,400 acres of vineyards of its members. Fertile land and systematic cultivation produces exceptional grape varieties.
In a completely industrialized environment with modern facilities they process 85% of the region’s output, and distribute them on the local and international markets.
The Peza Union’s winery has a capability of processing 20.000 tons of grapes, with a bottling line and a quality-control lab. The Union’s wine makers cultivate local varieties such as Kotsifali, Madilari, Mavazia, Vilana, Thrapsathiri, and international varieties such as Syrah and Merlot.
Their wines have won prizes in international competitions, for example the “Nisos” wine achieved 88 points on the PAR list, coming third among the Greek red wines in the German competition Wine System AG (Prowein 2012). Their innovative packaging of the Tetra Pak both protects the wine from external factors and is really handy for consumers.
