Wine - Protected Designation of Origin Santorini

Santorini has a well-known and flourishing wine industry. The wine production dates back thousands of years, approximately around the 3rd millennium BC. The vineyards have continuously produced wines for 4,000 years, save for a period of approximately three hundred years immediately after the volcanic eruption, where all life was eliminated due to the volcanic ash (known as “aspa”) and lava covering the island from side to side. Today, the vineyard of Santorini consists of approximately 1200 hectares of family-owned vineyards, which in their unique geographical conditions and cultivation techniques comprise part of Greece’s intangible cultural heritage.

Assyrtiko is the white grape variety that thrives in its birthplace, the volcanic land of Santorini.
