And do not forget the famous wine of SANTORINI. Vinsanto, a sweet wine used for mass by the Russian church, has long been an important source of revenue due to its worldwide export.
Today, mainly dry, unmistakable white wine is produced on SANTORINI from vines cultivated in volcanic soil. Due to the wind, the vines are kept short and cut into the form of a nest. This is done so that during dry times the humidity in the night air can be collected when it condenses. In this fashion an interesting, intelligent white wine is made, a wine which does not betray its volcanic origins and sunny character.
