Tasting Notes

A full-bodied, rich white wine that's dry on the palate. An excellent foil for seared scallops in a browned butter sauce. The Venetsanos family started making wine in 1947 and had a gravity-feeding winery from its inception. They respect old traditions and have transformed themselves to be one of the exceptional modern estates on Santorini.

Astor's Glossary of Terms

Assyrtiko

Pronounced "a SEER tee ko". This white varietal is native to Santorini and the other Aegean Islands. Used to make crisp dry wines similar in style to dry Riesling, it is often blended with other varietals - both indigenous and international - such as Sauvignon Blanc. This grape is also used to make the popular Greek dessert wine, Vinsanto.
