About

Product Description:

Around 5,000 years ago, the Minoans settled the Southern Aegean, including the island of Thira (Santorini). Today, in Crete, farmers are cultivating the ancient variety Assyrtiko which originated from the island of Santorini. The Alexakis brothers source these grapes from high-elevation vineyards where ancient wine presses have survived since the Bronze Age. The wine is tank-fermented and aged sur lie for three months.
