Santorini is famous not only for its stunning landscapes and picturesque villages but also due to its amazing wine and food.
The wine has been produced on the island since ancient times as far as the Bronze Age. Nowadays its vineyards are among the oldest in Europe and their quality is due to the unique combination of soil elements such as volcanic ash, lava and pumice stone. Additionally, the weather plays an important role. The island climate is characterized mostly by its sunny days throughout the year and the high humidity during the nights.
These conditions create a perfect environment to cultivate more than 35 varieties of grapes and to provide the perfect conditions to grow the exquisite traditional products that represent the island gastronomy. From fava spit peas, green capers, cherry tomatoes, eggplants, divine pastries, and desserts, there are enough flavours for those looking for the real taste of Santorini.
