Santorini is immune to phylloxera as its volcanic soils contain none of the clay that is necessary for parasite to survive. As a result, many of the roots found on the vines on Santorini are centuries old. The grape growers of Santorini use a unique bush-training system, known as koulara, to grow the grapes. As the vines grow, they are woven into baskets with the grapes facing toward the inside of the ring. The vine’s leaves and vine provide protection for the grapes from harsh winds and sunlight.
Nykteri wine: In Greek, the name means “working the night away” as it was traditionally harvested at night to avoid the hot temperatures and create a fine wine with little extraction from colour and exposure to air.
Vinsanto wine is an ancient winemaking tradition of Santorini that dates back thousands of years and represents an important part of Santorini’s history.
Best time to visit is in May and September and it's worth staying least 3 days.
