Atlantis represents a milder interpretation of the typically mineral-driven and acidity-focused Assyrtiko grape. This variety is blended with two other indigenous grapes, earning the winery international recognition for its quality and unique style. This distinction is further highlighted by the fact that even this "entry-level wine" originates from 60-year-old vines. Here, the vines are cultivated in the traditional old Santorini style, utilizing low, circular basket shapes to shield them from the island's harsh winds and scorching sun.
