About the Winery:
Raised on Santorini, Paris Sigalas, first began making wine inside the traditional cave or “canava” located at the family home where he was born. Paris now runs a modern winery located in the same village of Baxedes, where visitors can come to taste his special wines and enjoy the famous Santorini sunset. A mathematician by trade, Sigalas has given all of his time and effort to realizing the extraordinary potential that the Assyrtiko of Santorini has to offer. Because of Paris’ deep affection for his native island, he has continued the island’s ancient winemaking traditions and has become a tireless advocate for the protection of the historic vineyard and the unique viticultural practices still used there.
