Basic Info

The history of the winery goes back to the 1952, when the grandfather, Artemis, was cultivating the vineyards in order to produce wine for his own family and later on, in order to sell it in the island and in the rest of Greece. Artemis Karamolegos, the grandson who succeeded his grandfather and his father at the winery of Exo Gonia, is an energetic young man full of passion for his job. Since 2004 and until today, he managed to rapidly evolve the family business and move many steps ahead. In 2004, there was a turn to a modern and of a high quality production winery with the creation of a bottled, labeled and of a good quality wine named “SANTORINI”. The very first but most important step was to renew part of the old vineyards, to plant new ones and others to be planted with Assyrtiko and other rare Santorinian varieties such as Aidani and Mavrotragano. That modern point of view in the vineyard, which is the most important part of the wine production process, resulted iin a multi awarded boutique Winery, one of the most dynamic in Greece. Tradition is combined with a modern point of view, expressing the pure Santorini volcanic character. Being a "team player", Artemis works with experienced and qualified specialists, such as the Oenologist Lefteris Anagnostou and the Deverlopment Director Dimitris Kekas.
