A unique winery…
SantoWines winery was built in 1992 in the village of Pyrgos, in a wonderful location on the caldera. It is one of the most modern wineries in Greece, where the technological perfection harmonizes wonderfully with the landscape uniqueness of the island. Its innovative architecture is remarkable, as it is built on different levels, just as the famous so- called "terraces" of the vineyard, i.e. the different levels that the farmers have developed in the farms, in order to facilitate the cultivation of the land. During the wine making process we utilize the physical phenomenon of gravity which replaces the use of pumps for the transfer of the must and wine which upgrades the quality of the wines produced.
Assyrtiko is the dominant white grape variety, which thrives in its homeland, the volcanic land of Santorini. As a single variety or blended with the aromatic Athiri and the delicate Aidani, it gives the Protected Designation of Origin Santorini wines: Santorini Assyrtiko, Santorini Nykteri and Vinsanto the traditional dessert wine made exclusively in Santorini, from sun-dried grapes. Santorini wines combine the high acidity with the intense minerality in the mouth. They are vibrant, full-bodied, with citrus fruits aromas. After ageing, they get more complex as the notes of oak, tea and honey are prevailing.
