Venetsanos Winery Santorini

Venetsanos Winery

Santorini


Tasting Notes

Delicate, intense and complex aromas of pear, white flowers and citrus fruits. Dominant flavours of bitter orange, with hints of mastic and fennel root. A rich, oily texture in the mouth with a highly refreshing lemony acidity and the characteristic Santorinian saltiness. An enjoyable long aftertaste.

Food Pairing

Ideal companion for seafood, grilled vegetables, fish, pasta and fresh or salty cheeses.
ABV: 13%
Grapes: Assyrtiko

Built in 1947 by acclaimed oenologist and architect George Venetsanos, the Venetsanos winery is one of the oldest on the island. Its current winemaker, Ionna Vamvakouri, is the only female owner, winery director and winemaker on the island having spent years proving herself in a male dominated industry. Today she produces exceptional quality wines for the Venetsanos winery and is widely recognised as one of Santorini’s premier winemakers. She chooses to make each of her labels from single parcels unlike any of the other wineries on the island – Venetsanos is as unique and groundbreaking today as it was in 1947.
