In this episode, we have the pleasure tasting some wines from the island of Santorini which itself is part of a group of islands called the Cyclades.
Located in the South Aegean Sea the island is only 1,400 hectares, with terraces that rise up to between 150m to 250m above sea level
Vineyards in the region were known to exist since the 17 century BC, but were destroyed by a volcano eruption around 1620 BC
The island was re-inhabited around 1200 BC when they started making wine again thus making this area a wine making area for some 3,000+ years.
Many of the wines on the island are over 50 years old.
The family vineyard that we are tasting the wine from during this Episode was called the Sigalas Winery when founded in 1991.
The vineyard has expanded since 1991 and now produces and bottles up to 300,000 bottles per year and is now called Domaine Sigalas.
You can find out more about this fabulous vineyard from their website:-
Our thanks go to Panayiota the Hospitality Director of Domaine Sigalas for sending the terrific samples we reviewed.
