The Lyrarakis estate is a family vineyard and winery which has been producing high quality wines since 1966.

Lyrarakis has devoted itself to the revival of indigenous, almost extinct, rare varieties such as Dafni, Plyto, Melissaki and others, vinifying wines that highlight their unique and distinctive character.

Lyrarakis is located in the mountainous commune of Alagni (440 metres above sea-level), south of the city of Heraklion, in Crete. The soils are predominantly loam with either more sand or clay depending on the vineyard site. The well-preserved 14th-century stone-presses in the fields around the winery is proof of the area’s long history of grape-growing and winemaking.

The sweet Liastos is made from a blend of sundried grapes and aged in small oak barrels for 12 months. It has aromas of ripe peach and apricot with honey and bitter marmalade flavours. A beautifully balanced sweet wine.
