In the Cycladic islands, the production of sweet wines from sun-dried grapes endures as the traditional winemaking technique passes from one generation to another. As early as the 16th century, documents describe the profitable trade between Santorini and Russia, based on the quality and fame of VINSANTO wines and their rare ability to last and improve over the years. VINSANTO production is excruciatingly long and inevitably costly, but after many years, when the barrels are opened it appears – sweet, complex, abundantly flavored and excellent – a truly rare wine, worthy of all the effort. Vinsanto is produced by 80% Assyrtiko, 10% Aidani, 10% Athiri
Food pairing
It could be a good companion for cigars and desserts made of chocolate or served as an aperitif or a digestive drink.

Producer
In 1903 George Argyros, owner of a 5 acres vineyard located in Episkopi Gonia Santorini, founded Estate Argyros in order to turn to advantage the grapes produced by his own vineyard. The winery he constructed was a small plant basically equipped and he made his wines according to the traditional Santorinian way. The produced wines were dry white wine (nihteri), dry red wine (brousko) and vinsanto, sold only in the local market. In 1950, the Estate passed to his son, Matthew Argyros, who expanded the vineyard to 15 acres, without though significant changes in the winery. The person who changed dramatically the image of the winery was the founder’s grandson Yiannis Argyros who runs the winery since 1974. Yiannis Argyros not only has increased the family vineyard to 65 acres but he has also rebuilt the winery transforming it into a modern plant aiming to combine tradition with modern technology. Yiannis Argyros is a winelover who works very hard to obtain high quality grapes in order to make superior quality wines. And there are many professionals in the Greek wine market who think of Yiannis Argyros as the best Greek winemaker in dry white wines and dessert wines. His efforts to produce high quality wines have been worldwide acknowledged, as indicates the award by the Wine & Spirits Magazine as one of 100 best wineries in the world for 2005 and 2006.
