Wine making dates back to antiquity in Santorini, where the volcanic soil has led to special grape varieties and splendid vinification. Wine makers had to come up with new, innovative techniques to grow grapes in a peculiar soil quality like that. Volcanic elements did not leave room for conventional techniques and so they needed to improvise. And the outcome has been purely intoxicating, with Theran wine boasting the finest quality standards in the global market.
