@GreekGateway interview with Christina Boutari

Jonathan Bliangas: Tell us about some of the challenges or benefits that come with having a winery located in a climate and landscape like Greece, and more specifically Santorini.

Christina Boutari: Greece has an excellent climate for many products, especially wine. Specifically, however, when it comes to Santorini, we are talking about a location with a very unique climate and a very unique soil made of volcanic rock. As a result, what we get is a very unique wine. Santorini is a warm, dry, and windy island. This can sometimes be a challenge when it comes to producing wine. As a matter of fact, the vineyards in Santorini were traditionally formed in the shape of round baskets. This was done to shelter the grapes from the heat and wind. It’s a very different way of growing grapes, and to my knowledge, Greece is the only country that practices this method.
