Spectacular Wines of Lyrarakis

9th September 2020


We are delighted to announce that Thorman Hunt will be the new UK distributors for the spectacular Lyrarakis Wines, the leading Cretan producer. We look forward to continuing the excellent work that FMV has achieved over the last 10 years.

Established on the island of Crete in 1966, the Lyrarakis family has devoted itself to the revival of indigenous, almost extinct, rare grape varieties such as Dafni, Plyto, Melissaki and others, vinifying wines that highlight their unique and distinctive character.

The Lyrarakis estate has spearheaded the explosion of interest in top Greek wines in the UK in recent years and are rightly found on many of the finest restaurant lists and at leading independent wine retailers.

“We are delighted to continue our UK journey with Thorman Hunt. I am confident their great team and specialisation on premium, family growers with distinctive wines will do a wonderful job representing our wines, building on the work of our last decade together with FMV.”
