Although Santorini is a small island, on the wine map is a place of high importance. The oldest continuously cultivated vineyards of the world, the vineyards of Santorini, were the birthplace of one of the most remarkable white grape varieties of the world, Assyrtiko.
The peculiar micro climate of the island in combination with the distinctive volcanic terrain, a terrain extremely poor in organic matter but at the same time extremely rich in inorganic elements, gave to the island’s wines unique characteristics such as minerality, very high acidity and many alcohol degrees. Its’ amazing wines made Santorini the target of numerous conquerors, like the Venetians and the Francs.
