The vineyard of Santorini is believed to be the world’s oldest. The vines are grown low on the soil in the “kouloura” method, woven into continuous circles to form a basket (about 75 years of age!) for protection from the strong winds and harsh summer sun. The nutrients of the volcanic soil pass through several meters of vine to finally reach the grapes, thus giving it its unique characteristics.
