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.

Easter traditions. On Holy (or Great) Thursday preparations begin when the traditional Easter bread, “tsoureki” is baked, and eggs are dyed red. Red is the color of life as well as a representation of the blood of Christ shed on the Cross and the hard shell of the egg symbolises the sealed Tomb of Christ.
