Wine maker’s notes
With dark terracotta color and a distinct nose of dried fig, plum, and spices. A full bodied wine, tannic and full structure. The ripe berry balances on a graceful acidity lace. Warm, fleshy and firm with concentrated aromas of raisin, cinnamon, and chocolate.
An excellent choice to accompany a duck with chestnuts and orange dish. Also, try it with Roquefort or Kopanisti cheese. For dessert, the winery suggests pear, apple or chocolate soufflé, or even with dry figs soaked in wine with cinnamon and clove.
It is best served at 8-10oC.

About Venetsanos Winery
Venetsanos winery is located right above the port of Athinios, overlooking the magnificent caldera of Santorini. The Venetsanos family has a very long tradition in producing wine. Originally was produced for the island and subsequently, it was exported extensively, and particularly to countries such as Russia. It was built in 1947 by the Venetsanos family and became the first industrial winery on the island. Its most distinguishing feature is the structural design, which essentially used gravity, facilitating energy efficiency, at a time when access to electricity and other energy sources was very limited. The winery was built in an unconventional manner constructed from above and moving downwards.
The Venetsanos winery, that can now be visited, is the culmination of this rich family tradition with the recently revamped buildings. The exceptional architectural structure is combined with the history of one of the most important wine producers in the Aegean. The winery is located in the most breathtaking location offering incredible vistas over the caldera and volcanic islands.
