Santorini Greece

July 23, 2017

If you are a fan of wine then Santorini is your place. Due to its unique climate and the aridity of the island, exceptional wine is produced. I'm not a big fan of wine myself but I enjoyed a glass of the Santorini brand wine, vinsanto. Vinsanto is a sweet dessert wine that is produced in Santorini for thousand years. Despite the fact that many interpret the name vinsanto as Vin Santo which means 'holy wine' it is not clear how Santorini's vinsanto took its name. For some, the name came from the crates with wine exported from Santorini to all over the world during Venice ruling. The crates were labeled as 'Santo' to indicate the origin from Santorini and as 'Vin' to denote the contents. Thus, the name vinsanto created.
