Argyros was established in Santorini in 1903 by Georgios Argyros, and today his great grandson Matthew Argyros continues the good work. Argyros is one of the best producers on the island, taking full advantage of its very old vineyards. There is no clay in Santorini's soils, so it is free of phylloxera and all of Argyros's vines are therefore ungrafted and ancient, with some being 200-300 years old. Yields are very low and only traditional native grape varieties are used: Assyrtiko, Athiri, Aidani, Mandilaria, Mavrathiro, Mavrotragano and Voudomato. These are fascinating, unique wines with a long history behind them and they offer amazing value for money.
