Gavalas Winery is located at the traditional settlement of Megalochori, Santorini. This stone building used to be an old canava-winery, following the traditional architecture of the ancient Thira. With respect to the local culture we have retained all the original areas of the winery, such us cellars, grape stomping rooms and old entrances. Meanwhile we created a modern section with high tech equipment in order to produce high quality wines.
Today our winery produces ten different labels with purpose to express the complexity of Santorini’s terroir. Production is focused in Assyrtiko which is the noblest Greek variety, while we try to revive some indigenous rare grapes like Katsano, Voudomato and Mavrotragano.
Our wines are now distributed all over Greece and exported to many international markets like USA, Japan, Germany, Belgium, UK and Cyprus.
