The Santorini Grape (Assyrtico) is the prevailing white vine variety, indigenous to the island, cultivated over a 13,000 acres' area.
The vineyards of the Union of Santorini Cooperatives account for 85% of the island's arable land.
Santorini Grape (Assyrtiko) is an ancient vine variety that remains phylloxera free -only a few such vineyards exist worldwide.
The vineyards grow on their own roots with sea mist water, a mist that drifts across the island at night to be captured by the thirsty leaves in the morning dew.
The Santorini Grape cultivation is unique in the world; close to the ground in the shape of a basket, protecting the grapes inside against winds and sunlight, while locking-in the essential sea mist water. We source the by-products of the cultivation from the Union of Santorini Cooperatives -the marcs. It is the first time that the great volume of winemaking by-products, instead of being discarded, is used to produce a cosmetic extract.
Giving a second chance to by-products of a number of different cultivations is one of the greatest achievements of the KORRES Soil Lab.
