The OuSyra Winery is a family run winery on the island of Syros, creating terroir-driven wines from rare indigenous Cycladic varieties.
Ungrafted Syros Island Serifiotiko grapes give this wine distinctive aromas of citrus fruit, well integrated alcohol and a dry refreshing aftertaste of Cycladic island minerality, which comes from its immediate proximity to the Aegean Sea.

Bush vines, to protect against the winds and very strong UV light that we receive on Syros, and to protect against expected future climate change.
