Vassaltis is the latest addition to Santorini’s long, storied winemaking history. Owner Yannis Valambous’ passion for wine drew him back to the island of Santorini, where he spent many a happy family holiday as a child. In the wake of the 2010 Greek financial crisis, a plan took root in his mind, a plan that was part dream, part folly. Yannis sought to breathe new life into the vineyards he inherited from his father.

An exceptionally complete wine with a great ageing potential, shows the true essence of what Santorini and Assyrtiko are about: aromas of basalt and pumice stone with ripe tropical fruits, honeysuckle and maritime salinity, and a palate of salty green fruits with high levels of minerality and acidity.

The long aftertaste adds depth and weight to the wine making it a perfect pairing for seafood and fish.

Press Reviews


94 points - David Lawrason

This has a quite fine, delicate and complex nose of hay, wildflowers, leesy spice and vague tropical fruit. Perhaps some fennel as well. It is notably rich yet elegant, much more so than expected from assyrtiko. Powerful too at $14% alcohol. It is creamy and almost lush but the minerality and warmth keep it in check. Flavours have excellent to outstanding length. Some bitterness and a salty tang on the finish. Clearly an elite white that needs some attention.
