ANHYDROUS HISTORY

ANHYDROUS CELLAR DOOR

THE HISTORY

It all began in early 2000.

Avantis Estate’s winemaker, Mr. Apostolos Mountrichas fell in love with Santorini and the strong personality of Assyrtiko and started his Santorini project in 2012.

He completed his project in 2021  by founding Anhydrous Winery.

His philosophy rely on experimentations in ancient wine making techniques that produce modern wines with purity and primary varietal characteristics.

Wines that reflect the connection to the Santorinian anhydrous land, the majesty of earth, the volcano, the sun, the sea breeze, the Cycladic air – the intense personality of this unique PDO land.

High quality wines sealed with the raw beauty of Santorini. These are the Anhydrous wines.
