The cultivation of vine in Santorini goes back 3.500 years ago. Findings from the excavations of the prehistoric town of Akrotiri show that vine cultivation, wine making and wine trade were the habitants’ important activities.
The santorini wine reflects the pure character of the variety, the micro-climate and the volcanic soil. High acidity, intense minerality and citrus flavors upfront are the key elements creating the complex character of assyrtiko, highlighting the Santorinian earth in perfect harmony.
The main local grape varieties (assyrtiko, aidani, athiri, mavrotragano, mantilaria) produce high quality wines that fully express Santorini’s unique ecosystem.
The famous wine of Santorini is assyrtiko, which dominates the vineyards on the island. The over century-old vines of Santorini find their best expression in the assyrtiko grape by giving world class wines.
