Report from Santorini

The Boutari family went to Santorini in mid to late 80s and the first harvest was in 1986. Since then a lot has changed in the way wine is produced in this unique island. Vine growers in Santorini used to harvest in September and the wines that were produced were very high in alcohol and more “heavy” wines.

We had a lot of convincing to do but finally growers realized that in order to produce high quality white wines then harvest time should be in early August. And this is the way it has been happening ever since!

Harvest 2012 for the dry white wine, Santorini Boutari is officially over and we are expecting another great vintage.

Cheers!
