Founded in 1997 by Haridimos Hatzidakis and Konstantina Chryssou.   The vineyards are located in Santorini, with the majority being planted in the region of Pyrgos Kallistis where Hatzidakis is the only certified organic producer. The vines are planted at an altitude of 100-300 meters above sea level and south/ southeast facing.  The grapes for ‘Santorini Familia’ are grown on sandy soils of organically farmed vineyards in Pyrgos.  Grapes are brought to the winery for crushing, separation of the must from the skins, and fermentation with indigenous yeasts at 17-18°C.  The wine is then aged for approximately 5 months in stainless steel tanks before being bottled without filtration.
Taste: This expression of Assyrtiko is dry, medium-full bodied with mouthwatering acidity. There’s fresh and ripe yellow apple, asian pear, and lemon zest on the palate. The saline minerality is a defining characteristic of the wine, with an underlying white button mushroom and white pepper savoury note. The finish is long and the wine finishes fresh.
Cellaring Potential: Enjoy now or cellar for 5+ years.
Food Matching: Great as an aperitif or pair with shellfish and lean white fish, fresh green salads and vegetable-based main courses.
