    Winemaker Notes

    Dry white wine produced from the Assyrtiko grape, grown in Santorini. This grapes for this wine come from Koutsoyannopoulos' family owned vineyard in Exo Gialos, on the east side of the island. Pre-fermentation maceration is used to enhance the aromatic potential of this wine, which has a crisp, refreshing mouth feel and intense minerality, both characteristics of Assyrtiko and Santorini.

    Goes well with a range of seafood, cheese and white meats in light sauces.

    Koutsoyannopoulos, Greece
    Koutsoyannopoulos Winery Image
    Koutsoyannopoulos Winery, founded in the late 19th century on the island of Santorini, is one of the oldest continuously producing families in Greece. From 1870 to 1917, the bulk of Koutsoyannopoulos’ exports went to Odessa in the Ukraine and was consumed in the Czarist court. While the Russian revolution in 1917 closed this chapter of exportation, the market opened up in France, Italy, and the rest of Western Europe. Today, four generations later, this winery continues to operate under the care and supervision of its present owner, Georgios Koutsoyannopoulos.

    The estate vineyards of the winery are comprised of 15 hectares which continue to be cultivated in the traditional way of weaving them into the shapes of baskets or crowns. These vineyards lie in the areas of Vothonas, Megalochori, and Fira. Long term contracts with farming families on the island also bolster the amount of fruit available in this bare and sparse land.

    A crisp white variety full of zippy acidity, Assyrtiko comes from the volcanic Greek island of Santorini but is grown increasingly wide throughout the country today. Assyrtiko’s popularity isn’t hard to explain: it retains its acid and mineral profile in a hot climate, stands alone or blends well with other grapes and can also withstand some age. Somm Secret—On the fairly barren, windswept Mediterranean island of Santorini, Assyrtiko vines must be cultivated in low baskets, pinned to the ground. The shape serves to preserve moisture and protect the growing grapes in its interior.
