Its Origins

The original 5 acre estate was established by Georgios Argyros on the Greek Island of Santorini. In 1974, after decades of supplying the local market, the founder’s Grandson Yiannis Argyros took over and expanded the estate to 65 acres, while modernising viticulture and winemaking to ensure the quality that would enable an export market. Even so, his son and current owner Matthew Argyros still follows this vision of elevated cosmopolitan standards with a strict respect for their ancient and distinctive tradition, with low-growing bush vines up to 300 years old still cultivated in the traditional ‘crown’ style, and Vinsanto grape dried outdoors on the ground in a unique manner that would be inconceivable in less profoundly dry, sun-baked regions of the world. From Santorini’s famous volcanic mineral soils, Argyros Estate presents a glimpse at one of the world’s oldest yet most overlooked winemaking traditions. But it also offers some of Europe’s most newly available, distinctive and minerally complex wines for the price.

What The Critics Say

Winemaker notes on current vintage

"Intense red in color, reminiscent of jam and liquorish, over a smooth spicy and toasted background, which comes from the small percentage of Mavrotragano. Fruity and tannic, this wine matches well with a great variety of meat dishes. Ageing for 6 months in French oak barrels of 500 litre."
