Koutsoyannopoulos Winery

The winery was started in 1870 by the brothers Grigoris and Dimitris Koutsoyannopoulos, exporting Vinsanto wine to Odessa. Today, the fourth generation with the care, passion and supervision of the owner George Koutsoyannopoulos continues the family tradition. Equipped with the latest technology, with extensive experience in viticulture techniques and the capabilities of local vine varieties, high quality wines are produced that express the unique terroir of the Santorini vineyards. But it's not just a winery. It is also a cultural leader. The establishment of the Wine Museum on the same estate that the winery is, is a cultural heritage for "today". In an imposing cave space, 8 meters below the ground and 300 meters long, in the shape of a maze, the history of Viticulture and Oenology of Santorini is presented. The visitor has the opportunity to meet the Santorini grape grower, through the exhibits, from 1660 to 1970. The stages of wine production as well as all the machines, are exhibited in chronological order. Pruning, plowing the land, harvesting, pressing and weighing the grapes. The rare exhibits, machinery and winemaking tools will transport the visitor to another era and he will end his tour at the office of the founder of the winery Grigorios Koutsoyannopoulos where all his personal belongings and office supplies of the year 1870 are exhibited. At the end of the visit, the visitor can try our wines in our wine tasting areas.
