        Wine & Spirits
        Yiannis Argyros was the king of Vinsanto before his death in 2012; he carried on a tradition that predates that of Tuscany’s sweet wines. His son, Matthew, now continues the tradition, seeing the wines through long barrel aging to take on their characteristic complexity. Although this is one of the estate’s younger wines, it’s spectacular. A blend of assyrtiko with aidani and athiri, late-harvested and sun-dried on a pumice plateau, this aged in oak barrels for four years. It stuns with its power, the acidity and sugar delivering honeyed flavors with spine-tingling intensity. It tastes of butter toffee and orange zest, vanilla and lemon, with herbal notes that accent its briskness and clarity. Masterful.

        Argyros Estate, Greece

        Founded in 1903, the Argyros Estate is located on the island of Santorini, famed for its spiraling vines and white washed churches. In 1950, the Argyros vineyards were passed down to the founder’s son, who tripled the estate from 5 to 15 acres. Yiannis Argyros, the third-generation owner of the estate who took over in 1974, began looking beyond the local market for his wines. The inorganic soil of the island of Santorini is naturally immune to Phylloxera and many other vineyard pests, reducing the need for synthetic herbicides & pesticides. Estate Argyros practices sustainable viticulture, using composted grape must as fertilizer, and plowing the vineyards with mules.


        The estate vineyards are located primarily in Episkopi and Pyrgos, which are prime locations for Assyrtiko. The ungrafted vines range in age from 30 to over 150 years, and are trained into basket-shaped bowls, a traditional technique called ""kouloura"". Today, Mathew Argyros, the fourth generation of family winemakers, continues his father's legacy by making legendary wines from Assyrtiko and other indigenous Santorinian varietals, using traditional techniques.
