Wine maker’s notes
In the middle of the fermentation we put it to the barrel for 4 months. The barrels are all French with a capacity of 225 lt.
Bright yellow colour with golden tones.
Elegant aromas of lime and magnolias flowers. A sense of citrus jam and mastic that co-exist harmoniously with herbal aromas of thyme, sage and mineral hints. The presence of the barrel is noticeable mainly by the sense of vanilla.
In the palate, the body is full, oily and the acidity creates balance with a strong and long aftertaste. The maturation in the barrel together with fine wine lees is detectable with the aromas of wood, roasted coffee, and flowers.
An ideal companion for oily fish, pasta with rich creamy sauces, ripe yellow cheese varieties and smoked eggplant dip. Best served at 10-12°C.

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 Venetsanos family and became the first industrial winery on the island. Its most distinguished 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.
The winery today offers you the chance to walk through and discover the history and tradition as well as the new wine making techniques. You are able to take a detailed tour of the winery from our expert staff while also tasting some of our exceptional wines
