In a small village of Kissamos named Anoskeli, birthplace of the Mamidakis family, an olive mill was built many years ago for the processing and exploitation of the olive oil produced by the family.
As time went by production grew, as did the extra virgin olive oil’s excellent reputation and the need for modernization of production led the family to construct a new, technologically advanced olive factory, as well as to make the decision to directly trade the extra virgin olive oil in the Greek and international markets under the ANOSKELI brand, thus honoring the family’s birthplace.
Gradually the company expanded into the cultivation and trading of Cretan wine, at first under the name of ANOSKELI and since 2011 the company disposes its white and red dry wines under the ANO PLAGIA brand in the Greek market. All vineyards are organic cultivations and are located in and around the village of Anoskeli. The varieties grown are Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Grenache, Asyrtiko, Vidiano and Vilana.
