Vibrant, mineral-driven Assyrtiko from the island of Santorini. Expressive with stone fruits, red delicious apple, jasmine, flint, and ash. The winery is the second oldest winery in the Island and dates back to 1880.

Koutsoyannopoulos Winery, founded in the late 19th century on the island of Santorini, is one of the oldest continuously producing families in Greece. From 1870-1917 the bulk of Koutsoyannopoulos’ exports went to Odessa in the Ukraine and was drunk in the Czarist court. While the Russian revolution in 1917 closed this chapter of exportation, the market opened up in France, Italy, and the rest of Western Europe. Today, four generations later, this winery continues to operate under the care and supervision of its present owner, Georgios Koutsoyannopoulos. The estate vineyards of the winery are comprised of 15 hectares which continue to be cultivated in the traditional way of weaving them into the shapes of baskets or crowns. These vineyards lie in the areas of Vothonas, Megalochori, and Fira. Long term contracts with farming families on the island also bolster the amount of fruit available in this bare and sparse land.
