    Description

    The richness and freshness of a Santorini white wine

    The estate

    Born of fire and sea, a mysterious island stands out off the coast of Greece: the legendary island of Santorini. It is in the heart of this beautiful setting that Domaine Sigalas lives on, under the watchful eye of its creator Paris Sigalas. This emblematic winemaker has been carrying forward the history inherited from his ancestors since 1991. Nicknamed the "mathematician," this true pioneer decided very early on to combine innovation and tradition by reinventing his approach to viticulture and oenology, propelling the famous 40-hectare estate to be one of the most important in Greece.

    The vineyard

    Rocked by powerful volcanic eruptions 3,700 years ago, the sublime terroir of Santorini almost disappeared forever. Fortunately, the outcome was quite different: like true architects, the island's winegrowers managed to build what would become one of the oldest vineyards in the world: its volcanic soil, its nest-shaped vines and the unique climate of the Oia plain shaped this exceptional terroir.

    Winemaking and ageing

    Following hand-picking, the grapes are rigorously sorted and then placed in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats to begin their alcoholic fermentation. The wine is then aged in vats for three months, with regular stirring of the lees.
