About Gavalas

Wines have been an inseparable part of the Gavalas family for over 300 years now. The main objective of the Gavalas seem to be an unending quest to produce wine from rare and indigenous grape varieties. The outcome of this innovative approach is a top-quality white wine, Katsano. Considered one of the most exotic wines produced till date by Gavalas, Katsano is produced from two varieties little known outside Santorini. The grapes are harvested before they are fully ripe and the wine possesses a delicate flavor of honey and lemon blossoms.

Besides Katsano, the winery produces two other white dry wines, Santorini and Nykteri, and one red dry, Xenoloo, produced from a blend of Mavrotragano, Voudomato and Athiri grape varieties and aged in French oak barrels for over a year. The Gavala range also includes the Vinsanto, a white sweet wine. The Gavalas Winery and their private vineyards are located in Megalochori, one of the most charming villages of Santorini. The guided tour of the winery is an exhilarating experience and takes the visitor through a well-lit stone tunnel, that works as a wine museum. The tunnel leads to a lovely courtyard.
