Antoniou Winery

"From the land of the vineyards and the volcano"

Within the natural beauty of this attractive island, once called Kallisti, businessman, Kostas Antoniou, revives today a 3,500-year-old Cycladic wine tradition in Megalochori at Santorini. Following the footsteps of Kyr-Giorgi Venetsanou, a chemist since 1930, who established the first winery in Greece, Kostas Antoniou decoded to give life to this land overlooking the Aegean, the sea praised by Greek poet, Elytis. He created new spaces for the production and aging of wines, a hall for artistic events and concerts, a traditional Greek coffee shop offering tastes from old times, and a lounge for exhibitions of jewelry and wine tasting. And so, the unique groin-vats on the roofs, the five different levels of vinification, the undermined natural fermentation vats, the cool cellars below ground, the old Radiki made of copper, the stone chimney always prominently marking the way, and the serpentine stairway leading to the wine cellars, all contribute to the revival of unforgettable moments of the past.
