The soil of Santorini and the pruning technique of the vineyards make the grapes and the vineyards unique all over the world.The soil is sandy and is a mixture of volcanic ash and pumice. There are a number of pruning techniques employed; the “giristi” and “koulouri” or “klada”. The pruning technique is both ancient and unique. It was created taking into account the soil and climate conditions of the island, as well as the farming tools and techniques available at the time. The sandy soil, the fierce spring winds, the time of year when the vineyards grow and the scorching sun of the summer have led to the creation of this peculiar and unique type of pruning.Domaine Sigalas’ wines are sorted according to their type. The presentation begins with white and light wines, moves to red and strong ones and ends with sweet wines.
