Gavalas family winery, one of the oldest wineries in Santorini, lies in the traditional village of Megalochori.
The purpose of the family is to highlight the particular characteristics of Santorini’s “terroir”. The fourth generation winemaker is George Gavalas and the fifth is his son, Vagelis.
With proper respect to the local varieties, the winery is focused on limited production bottling. Gavalas winery vinifies the most vibrant variety in Greece, Assyrtiko, as well as Aidani, Mandilaria and Mavrotragano. In order to show the richness of the land, it is the only winery in Santorini that vinifies the indigenous rare varieties of Katsano and Voudomato.
