Artemis Karamolegos Santorini is a classic 90% Assyrtiko, 10% Athiri & Aïdani blend from Santorini's finest winery. This fine white has a nose of peach, citrus, wet stones, jasmine and mint, and saline freshness.

Although the Artemis Karamolegos winery was officially founded in the form we know it today in 2004, the Karamolegos family has a winemaking tradition that stretches back to 1952. Today it is the most widely awarded winery on the island of Santorini, with their modern cellar producing a range of of exceptional wines mainly from Assyrtiko, alongside other indigenous grape varieties of Santorini.  This is the third largest winery on Santorini, working with a combination of their own vineyards and  experienced growers across the island.

Santorini's unique terroir was forged by a huge volcanic eruption back in 1620 B.C. The volcanic soils create an environment that is uniquely hostile to Phylloxera, meaning that vines have remained on their original rootstocks. The dry, unforgiving terroir means  roots of the vines often exceed 20 meters long as the penetrate deep into the suboil in the search for water.  The vines can only survive in this arid climate due to the capacity of the soil to retain what little moisture there is. This is one of the world's oldest viticultural areas, with vinegrowing traced back over 34 centuries. Grapes for this wine are sourced  from old vineyards in different parts of the island. The majority comes from Pyrgos, Exo Gonia, Megalochori and some from Akrotiri, Emporio and Fira.

A cool vinification in separate stainless steel tanks for each variety of the blend with a little early skin contact. The wine is then aged on its lees for at least 7 months.
