In the last decade of the previous century, a type of dry white wine started to evolve in the viticultural area of Santorini, as a result of modern technology and know-how. Estate Argyros was one of the leading wineries of this new trend. It is made by 100% Assyrtiko variety, but the grapes are chosen from the oldest part of the vineyard with an average age 150 years-old.
Food pairing
A great variety of food, especially lamb cooked in vine- leaves or fish oven cooked with tomato juice. It is also complimentary in many traditional tastes of Santorini such as fava, chloro cheese and tomato-balls

Producer
In 1903 George Argyros, owner of a 5 acres vineyard located in Episkopi Gonia Santorini, founded Estate Argyros in order to turn to advantage the grapes produced by his own vineyard. The winery he constructed was a small plant basically equipped and he made his wines according to the traditional Santorinian way. The produced wines were dry white wine (nihteri), dry red wine (brousko) and vinsanto, sold only in the local market. In 1950, the Estate passed to his son, Matthew Argyros, who expanded the vineyard to 15 acres, without though significant changes in the winery. The person who changed dramatically the image of the winery was the founderís grandson Yiannis Argyros who runs the winery since 1974. Yiannis Argyros not only has increased the family vineyard to 65 acres but he has also rebuilt the winery transforming it into a modern plant aiming to combine tradition with modern technology. Yiannis Argyros is a winelover who works very hard to obtain high quality grapes in order to make superior quality wines. And there are many professionals in the Greek wine market who think of Yiannis Argyros as the best Greek winemaker in dry white wines and dessert wines. His efforts to produce high quality wines have been worldwide acknowledged, as indicates the award by the Wine & Spirits Magazine as one of 100 best wineries in the world for 2005 and 2006.
