About Canava Roussos
Canava Roussos, the oldest on Santorini, was founded in 1836 to produce high-quality wines uniquely expressing the characters of the numerous varieties of Thiran grapes.
Decades of experience have passed from generation to generation so that, with consistency, continuity and absolute respect, the expression is given to the island’s art of wine-making.
Today, Canava Roussos, faithfully adhering to the island’s traditions, values modern technology and aims at creating wines with individual tastes and bouquets, selecting fruit of the highest quality from the island’s select varieties: Assyrtiko, Athiri, Aidani, Mandilaria, Mavrathiro.
At harvest-time, traditional wine-making methods are followed using authentic Santorini installations, allowing many visitors to see the “treading” and then “boiling” of the must in subterranean cisterns and huge barrels, and in some cases may actually experience the process.
