TN : Asyrtiko 2008, White Dry Wine, Domaine Sigalas, Santorini, Greece

The grapes for this wine were grown on volcanic soils on the island of Santorini.

Domaine Sigalas was founded in 1991 by Paris Sigalas, Christos Markozane and Yiannis Toundas. Initially, the Sigalas winery was accommodated at the traditional winery of Paris Sigalas family. Later on in 1998, a new wine production, bottling and maturity unit was built and activated in Oia, the northern part of Santorini Island. Today, after constant investments on technology modernization and expansions the current productive structure is formed, which allows the elaboration and bottling of 200.000 bottles a year.
