Paris Sigalas lifts the curtain, so to speak, on the amazing way the vines are trained. Wrapped into a basket, the vines are trained this way to protect the grapes from unrelenting sun, wind, and sand. Taken as the sun sets over Domaine Sigalas.

The Domaine Sigalas Winery in Santorini, Greece. Their white wines are delicious, and perfectly acidic thanks to the volcanic ash enriched soil of the island.

There is archeological evidence that the cultivation of the vine on Santorini dates back almost 5000 years. However, it was the eruption around 1600BC that made the unique wines of Santorini what they are today. The explosion left behind a mixture of volcanic ash, pumicestone, pieces of solidified lava and sand, known as “aspa”. The soil has little to no organic matter, but is rich in essential minerals , creating wines with a natural low pH level and high acidity.
