HATZIDAKIS WINERY

After the passing of Haridimos Hatzidakis in 2016, his family, including his widow Konstantina and their three children, Stella, Ariadni and Antonis, took over this unique winery, which is a part of Santorini’s wine legacy and embodies a centuries-old winemaking tradition.

The winery, situated in Kallisti near Pyrgos, is a traditional canava, or wine facility; it’s carved into the soft but solid volcanic rock of the island. It consists of a cellar 12 meters long where the barrels are kept and the wine tastings take place, protected from the high summer temperatures. The rest of the winery, built in 2014 as an addition to the old canava, houses the main production area. The winery produces approximately 130,00 bottles, of which about 50% are exported to markets around the world.

The late Haridimos Hatzidakis, considered one of Santorini’s most talented oenologists, was the first to vinify single-vineyard wines, sourcing his grapes from the unique Louros vineyard. He also worked together with Paris Sigalas to make the first red wines from the rare variety Mavrotragano in 1997.

Today, his family is continuing his legacy and has added some new labels to the portfolio: Rabelia, a single-vineyard Assyrtiko, and Liasimo, a sweet dessert wine made from the variety Mandilari and using the Solera method to draw from different vintages. The second of these has not yet been put on the market.
