Dafni

The white grape variety comes from the island of Crete(Greece). Synonyms are Dafnia, Daphni and Daphnia. It should not be confused with the Daphnato (Daphnata) variety, which is no longer cultivated. The very late ripening vine is generally very resistant to vine diseases. It produces white wines with moderate alcohol content and aromas of rosemary, tropical fruit and ginger. The variety is cultivated exclusively in the centre of the island of Crete on 15 hectares of vineyards.
