Santorini Wine Report: Earth, Wind & Fire

 

 

Dear wine lover,
 

 We wanted to share with you the exciting news of the publication of the Terroir Report on Santorini by Yiannis Karakasis MW. It can be found on Yiannis’ site.
 

 From 6 producers in 1988 to 20 after three decades, the fame of Santorini wines has reached unprecedented levels, with recent vintages having brought great acclaim from wine critics and sommeliers at top Michelin-starred restaurants.
 

 
 
 

 At the same time, the island faces many challenges, the most significant of which is the preservation of an ancient vineyard whose exact age is unknown.
 

 In the Santorini Terroir Report you will find detailed coverage of all the facts, challenges and bets on Santorini wine. There are chapters on history, grape varieties (starring Assyrtiko) and the different terroirs, together with the present and future of the industry.
 

 All 20 producers of the island are profiled and there are also recommendations of wines that Yiannis believes are worth seeking out and enjoying from the portfolio of each producer. There are also maps that show the location of the wineries and villages, along with informative tables and illustrations on producers and wines.
 

 This is the most complete yet analysis of a Greek PDO with an amazing depth of information in a very comprehensive style.
