Where you see a chimney in Santorini, a tomato factory used to operate there. At the beginning of 20th century, there were 13 tomato factories on the island producing tomato paste. At that time, the cherry tomato and the wine were the main products of Santorini and thus the backbone of the local economy. But then, after the big earthquake in July 1956, many people abandoned the island and the factories closed or moved to the mainland.

Santorinian honey’s aroma comes mainly from thyme and other aromatic plants which due to the microclimate of the island offer a unique quality to the nectar.  When you taste it, we're sure you'll sing the Honey Honey! Yummy

Katsouni is the cucumber of Santorini. It’s bigger than the common cucumber and has a thicker skin and more seeds. If not harvested on time, it becomes sweet and has a melon taste!

Once you tasted the cherry tomato of Santorini, you will never forget its taste. It’s thick-skinned, juicy and full of flavor. Fresh, sun-dried, sweet or as paste, its taste is “to die-for”. Yummy!

Low in fat and high in proteins, Fava (yellow split peas) is one of the most famous local products of Santorini. The unique flavor, taste and texture of the fava puree come from Lathyrus Clymenum plant that grows only on the island for more than 3.500 years. In 2010, “Fava Santorinis” has been listed as a P.D.O. (Protected Designation of Origin) agricultural product of the EU.

A white eggplant? Are you kidding? Well, the white eggplant is one of the unique agricultural products of Santorini Island. It has a white thin skin, few seeds, slight sweet (!) taste and it doesn’t absorb so much oil when fried. That’s delicious!

That's the caper's flower. Caper is a wild bush growing on the steep rocky slopes of the island. The locals use the caper buds (kaparokoumba), fresh or dried, and the leaves (kaparofylla) in their salad, on the top of the fava puree and….well, everywhere!

Grape treading at the Gavalas Winery on Santorini ~ The sun-dried grapes are spread out in the original winery foot-pressing vat, and the rich juice flows by gravity through a basket that acts as a filter and into tanks below ground. The grapes are pressed four times. After each pressing, they are swept into a corner of the vat and left to sit for a few hours, then spread out and thoroughly stepped on again to make sure that all of the precious juice is extracted.
