About the Winery:
The Gavalas family’s history, part of the rich tradition of winemaking in Santorini, is carried on today by George Gavalas utilizing many of the same practices as his distant forefathers. But even though many customs of the past still remain, George has been able to bring a modern approach to the family business in order to help realize the enormous potential of the indigenous varieties from this unique volcanic island. The winery, located in Megalohori, focuses on the main variety of Assyrtiko, but also been involved in reviving some of the more obscure grapes on the island like Katsano and Gaidouria.
