Syros, an island in the Cyclades group in the Aegean Sea, is not as well-known for its wine production as other Greek islands. However, like many islands in the region, it has a history of viticulture and winemaking due to its Mediterranean climate and unique terroir.
Wine production on Syros is relatively small-scale, with a focus on local grape varieties and traditional winemaking methods. Some of the grape varieties cultivated on the island include Assyrtiko, Athiri, Aidani, Mandilaria, and Fokiano. These grapes are used to produce a range of wines, from crisp and refreshing whites to fruity and balanced reds.
Given the island's limited wine production, Syros wines are mostly consumed locally and are not as widely available as those from more famous Greek wine regions. Nevertheless, at Greece and Grapes we are proud to have a selection of truly outstanding wines from Syros for you to try.
