About Venetsanos Winery
Venetsanos winery is located right above the port of Athinios, overlooking the magnificent caldera of Santorini. The Venetsanos family has a very long tradition of producing wine. Originally was produced for the island and subsequently, it was exported extensively, particularly to countries such as Russia. It was built in 1947 by the Venetsanos family and became the first industrial winery on the island. Its most distinguishing feature is the structural design, which essentially used gravity, facilitating energy efficiency, at a time when access to electricity and other energy sources was very limited. The winery was built in an unconventional manner constructed from above and moving downwards
Santorini is unique by itself. The soil which is made from the last volcanic eruption has a unique composition of rust, cinders, lava, and pumice stone. Even in soil like this – poor for the majority of the plants – the vine grows normally. The regional Santorini micro-climate gives lower temperatures compared with the other islands, rare rainfalls during the wintertime, and strong winds all year long, influencing the way of development and cultivation of the vine. Despite the dry climate of Santorini, night-developing humidity is captured by the soil and absorbed by the plants.
