Wine maker’s notes
Vinification techniques: Classic white wine vinification from sun dried grapes (10-12 days). Ageing in old oak barrels for a minimum of 24 months. Vinsanto is the most genuine descendant of the “passon oinon”, as the sun-dried wines were called in antiquity. During the Middle Ages, the ancient volcanic Thira was renamed as Santo Erini – Santorini and thus the wine took the name Vino Santo – Vinsanto, thus declaring its place of origin. Thus, the name is a «historical name of appellation», one of the few still in existence.
