    Winemaker Notes

    Crystal-clear yellow color, distinctively flavored with citrus overtones. The relatively high acidity of Asyrtico gives it a crisp freshness, while the vineyard's extremely low performance offers body, structure and substance.

    Argyros Estate, Santorini, Greece
    Image of winery
    Estate Argyros was established in 1903 by Georgios Argyros, in a 5 acres vineyard located in Episkopi Gonia Thiras (Santorini). Georgios Argyros made his wines according to the traditional Santorinian way, in order to take advantage of the grapes produced by his own vineyard. The wines produced were sold mainly in the local market. In 1950, Estate Argyros passed to Matthew Argyros, who not only continued his father’s business, but expanded the family vineyard to 15 acres. The person who changed significantly the image of the winery was the founder’s grandson Yiannis Argyros who runs the winery since 1974. Yiannis Argyros not only has increased the family vineyard to 65 acres but he worked hard to combine the family tradition with modern technology and to ensure the high quality of grapes.

    Matthew Argyros represents the 4th generation of winemaking in Estate Argyros and he has been already acknowledged as a capable continuator of the old tradition and the successful progress. Faithful to the principals of his ancestors, he remains also a visionist and he works hard for the future of Estate Argyros and the wine of Santorini. The vineyard is located in Episkopi Gonia Thiras, with altitude of 35-150m, oriented to the east and south-east. The soil is volcanic and the vines are formed in the traditional crown. Estate Argyros owns one of the oldest vineyards on the island, as parts of it are more than 150 years old. The performance of the vineyard is about 350-500kg of grapes per 1000 m2 and the harvest lasts from 10 to 25 of August. The cultivation and the winemaking in Estate Argyros are based only on indigenous varieties from Santorini, such as Assyrtiko, Athiri, Aidani, Mandilaria, Mavrathiro, Mavrotragano and Voudomato. Besides, there is a big effort to revive the ancient and rare varieties of the island.

    With hundreds of white grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World, experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to enhance balance or create complexity, lending different layers of flavors and aromas. For example, a variety that creates a soft and full-bodied wine would do well combined with one that is more fragrant and naturally high in acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
