"Santorini wineries" Santorini Island Favorite Tip by Lilasel
Santorini Island General: 147 reviews and 274 photos
Favorite thing: Santorini is a wine Name of Origin and its wines are distinct and unique.
Santorini's vines are different than anywhere else due to the unique way they are raised, in a design reminiscent of a woven basket. This is an art that the local growers have perfected through the centuries to deal with the unusual prevailing weather conditions.
Due to the size of the island and the weather conditions (windy, sunny, and dry throughout the year), local wineries produce only limited quantities (about 300-500 kilograms per 1,000 square meters of land) of very distinctive wines, with strong dry mouths. Most of the wineries are located in Megalochori.
Fondest memory: The most important local wineries are:
* Boutaris (the top winery in Greece)www.boutaris.gr
* Gavalas winery has been around for more than 100 years
* Antoniou winery
