About the Winery:
The Vassaltis Winery is the latest addition to Santorini's booming wine culture, with construction completed in April 2016. In the wake of the Greek financial crisis in 2010, Yannis Valambous returned to Santorini, his childhood holiday destination, with a plan that was part dream, part folly which was  to revive the family vineyards he inherited from his father and create a modern, state-of-the-art, boutique winery. Together with Oenologists Elias Roussakis and Yannis Papaeconomou, who complete the team, they share the vision that Santorini can produce world class wines, and that a new generation of Greek winemakers can deliver big results, given the opportunity. The winery is open to visitors year-round, in addition to tours that introduce visitors to the indigenous grape varieties of the island and the unique viticultural practices that have been a tradition in Santorini for centuries.
