In the Cycladic area production of sweet wines from sun-dried grapes were the main traditional winemaking technique. Particularly in Santorini, because of the wealth of varietal grape and high quality raw material, this technique reached its apogee with the extremely sun-sweet wines Vinsanto.
From the 16th century we find writings describing the profitable trade of the island to Russia, based on the quality and reputation of Vinsanto but in the rare ability to withstand chrono.
The production process is painful, long and costly. But when after many years open barrels, appears Vinsanto sweet, complex, unique, exuberant, excellent. A rare krasi.
