Overview

Femina is an Italian word for woman. It is the perfect word to describe a wine with aromas of flowers, lychee, roses and citrus fruit. The variety used in this wine is Malvasia di Candia Aromatica, which has a long history in Greece and Italy. We owe this wine to Nikos Douloufakis, who studied in Italy and who makes a top-quality Malvasia in Dafnes, Heraklion, with the medieval name Chandakas (Candia). As an aromatic wine, Femina is best served as a welcoming wine, an aperitif, in bars and restaurants, or paired with light salads.
