About the Winery: 

Domaine Sigalas was founded on the island of Santorini in the south Aegean in 1991 by Paris Sigalas, Christos Markozane and Yiannis Toundas. Located outside the small town of Oia, on the northern part of Santorini Island, their very modern winery was built in 1998, although grape growing in this part of the world dates back to antiquity.

The viticultural region of Santorini is ancient, with varieties that date back thousands of years. The vines are classified as old vines (since they were not destroyed during the Phylloxera epidemic), and are over 50 years in age. The company cultivates 19 hectares of vineyards with local varieties and produces quality wines, in which you can see the potential of the varieties and the unique 'terroir' of the volcanic island. The viticultural region of the island has a size of approximately 1,400 hectares, starting at sea level and ascending in terraces up to the caldera, which has a height of 150 to 250 meters above sea level. Vines literally grow right up to the beach and are situated in very sandy soil.

Colour: Pale Yellow, with green hues.
