antorini is the jewel among the group of islands of Cyclades.
The soil of Santorini has calcareous origin and is covered by ashes, scoria, lava and pumice-stone. The rains on the island are few and winds very strong.Consequently there is on the one hand small effiiciency of vineyards in acres but on the other hand excellent quality of the wine.
The vineyard of Santorini have never been struck by any disease.
he wine industry Gavalas deals exclusively with the section of wine of Santorini since the end of the 19th century.
The first two decades of the 20th century our wine, which is produced in our private vineyards, was largely exported to Alexandria of Egypt, while during the 30's it was entered into Greek market too.
It was carried by mules in wine-skins and was transported from the town of Santorini to the bay of Fira where it was decated in barrels of 600 kilos, which were called bombos and in a small boats (caiques) it reached its destination.
ince 1998 we have been bottling the wines of the wine industry "Gavalas vineyard" in our modern wine factory in Megalohori of Santorini. George Gavalas, owner and third-generation winemaker, is personally responsible for the quality and making of the wine.
