About the Winery:
In 1996, Haridimos and Konstantina Hadzidakis returned to
the family vineyard their parents had been forced to abandon long ago,
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

today with an unmatched passion and creative drive to make the perfect
