Snow on Santorini
Posted by Greeka.com on 29 Feb 2008
The recent snowfall on Santorini was an extreme rare phenomenon for the island. In fact, it was the second snowfall in 20 years. Since the snow was heavy and lasted for many days, the residents fear of the production of wine, which is one of the island's most famous products.
Experts say that vine yards do not have something to fear. They stress that although snow reduces the soil temperature, this will give the plants the opportunity to mature and thus get higher quality. Therefore, the wines of Santorini are expected to be of more high quality this year.
