VSV Winery’s (Volcanic Slopes Vineyards Winery) history goes back to the 19th century. Located in picturesque Episkopi Gonia village, Santorini, it produces exclusively a single wine called ‘Pure’.
It is Matthaios Argyros, the creative power that created VSV, is the scion of a family that has been behind Estate Argyros for more than a century. The Estate was officially established in 1903, at first as a canava, the traditional term used in Santorini for describing a winery. As most canavas, this was an underground cellar, mainly made out of volcanic stones. In 2013, the canava was totally renovated in order to host the VSV winery.
The Volcanic Slopes Vineyards team starts winemaking in the vineyard, with intense grape sorting in the field at the time of harvest, to eliminate substandard berries. Hand sorting continues at the winery.
Gentle pressing in a pneumatic press is followed by light settling. Juice is transferred to cement tanks and allowed to ferment naturally.
The winery of Volcanic Slopes Vineyards is simple, efficient, yet expresses in full clarity the individuality of the only wine it produces.
