Our Assyrtiko


Plant of Assyrtiko The cluster of Assyrtiko

An exceptional white variety of Greece originated from Santorini.  From there it successfully immigrated to Halkidiki, Epanomi, Drama, Pangeo, Attica, Peloponnese. This variety has been widely used to create vineyards all over Greece due to its high acidity, its aroma and its adaptability to different type of soils and climates while retaining its character.
Assyrtiko produces wines of high alcoholic content and acidity, a rare combination for a white Mediterranean variety, wines that are known for their lively, robust palate and distinctive nose, which is more mineral and earthy in Santorini while in mainland Greece – and northern Greece in particular – it is particularly fruity and floral.
