Estate Argyros

In 1903 George Argyros, owner of a 5 acres vineyard located in Episkopi Gonia Santorini, founded Estate Argyros in order to turn to advantage the grapes produced by his own vineyard. The winery he constructed was a small plant basically equipped and he made his wines according to the traditional Santorinian way. The produced wines were dry white wine (nihteri), dry red wine (brousko) and vinsanto, sold only in the local market.
In 1950, the Estate passed to his son, Matthew Argyros, who expanded the vineyard to 15 acres, without though significant changes in the winery.
The person who changed dramatically the image of the winery was the founder's grandson Yiannis Argyros who runs the winery since 1974. Yiannis Argyros not only has increased the family vineyard to 65 acres but he has also rebuilt the winery transforming it into a modern plant aiming to combine tradition with modern technology.
Yiannis Argyros is a winelover who works very hard to obtain high quality grapes in order to make superior quality wines. And there are many professionals in the Greek wine market who think of Yiannis Argyros as the best Greek winemaker in dry white wines and dessert wines.
His efforts to produce high quality wines have been worldwide acknowledged, as indicates the award by the Wine & Spirits Magazine as one of 100 best wineries in the world for 2005 and 2006.

Wine Advocate 91 The 2016 Assyrtiko is the screwcapped version, not the upper-level Estate Santorini that has some oak. As with last year's comparison of the Atlantis blend and this "regular" Assyrtiko, the difference here is less in concentration (although it has just a little more) than in a bit

Crystal-clear yellow color, distinctively flavored with citrus overtones. The relatively high acidity of Assyrtiko gives it a crisp freshness, while the vineyard's extremely low performance offers body, structure and substance.

Estate Argyros Assyrtiko 2015
91  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 91 "The 2015 Assyrtiko comes in at 14% alcohol. This adds a layer of depth and steel to the Atlantis white, also reviewed. On the other hand, the extra concentration here makes it a little brooding. It lacks the personality and lively feel of the perky Atlantis. Still, this well-built

New York Times 3 Stars "Our No. 1 wine, the 2008 Atlantis from Argyros on Santorini, offered a very different sort of flavor profile. It was focused, harmonious and well structured, with an unusually meaty, savory aroma and underlying fruit and mineral flavors. Is that typical of a wine thats 90
