About the Winery:
In 1996, Haridimos and Konstantina Hadzidakis returned to the family vineyard their parents had been forced to abandon long ago, after the earthquake of 1956. Together they transformed a traditional cave or “canava, carved in volcanic rock, into a small boutique winery that now produces some of the finest PDO Santorini wines on the island. Their vineyards surrounding the winery are some of the few actually certified organic on the island and are cultivated using the traditional basket shape vines grown directly on top of the volcanic soil. An innovative Enologist, since his first days of working at Boutari’s Santorini winery, Haridimos continues his work today with an unmatched passion and creative drive to make the perfect Santorini wine.
