Native to Santorini, Assyrtiko is a rare grape in terms of vineyard area, but is quickly picking up acreage throughout Greece. Noted for its texture, acidity, and minerality.

Around 5,000 years ago, the Minoans settled the Southern Aegean, including the island of Thira (Santorini). Today, in Crete, farmers are cultivating the ancient variety Assyrtiko which originated from the island of Santorini. The Alexakis brothers source these grapes from high-elevation vineyards where ancient winepresses have survived since the Bronze Age. The wine is tank-fermented and aged sur lie for three months.
