ANHYDROUS HISTORY

ANHYDROUS CELLAR DOOR

THE HISTORY

It all began in early 2000.

The Winemaker Apostolos Mountrichas of Avantis Estate Winery in Evia, fell in love with Santorini and the strong personality of Assyrtiko.

In 2012 he returned back for the winemaking of the top indigenous variety in the incomparable volcanic terroir of Santorini.

His philosophy rely on wines with purity, primary varietal characteristics and balance. 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.
