60 years of Viticulture Tradition
The word poem comes from the Greek word poiein, meaning "to make, to create”. Literally poets are makers.
And that’s how we feel. Like poets. We are passionate makers of food products in an art form. Our products, our delicious agricultural poems, originate from the special ecosystem of Cretan nature, capture the essence of our culinary tradition and lead to a healthier and happier lifestyle.
Our family, Dermitzakis Family, has a 60-year-history of viticulture in the region of Heraklion, Crete. We cultivate the native grape variety Sultana. We use traditional cultivating techniques to ensure that the soul of our vineyards remains intact throughout the whole production process. And we create staple products of the famous Cretan Diet based on original Cretan recipes:
- Dried Sultana Raisins
- Vine Leaves in Brine
- Petimezi (grape juice syrup)
Crete is blessed with intense geomorphology, good soils, rich flora and excellent climate. Strongly connected to the Cretan ecosystem, the regional culinary tradition and way of life, our food products express the simplicity of the Cretan lifestyle and trigger memories of happy summers on the island of Crete.
Every product of “Agro-Poems Dermitzakis” is a promise. A promise from our family to you that you’ll always get and enjoy the best.
