As our name suggests, wine is the core of the Assyrtico Wine Restaurant Café’s philosophy, from the very first moment it opened its doors. We are located in Santorini, the most popular island of the Cyclades, with the famous volcanic vineyard. The island produces top quality wines each year and has numerous wineries. One of the most distinct and rare Greek white grape varieties which originates from the ancient Santorini vines, is Assyrtiko.
The Assyrtico Wine Restaurant Café selection is renewed every season as we constantly broaden our knowledge on wine. Our list includes around 100 different wine labels. Naturally, we emphasize on the local vineyard; that is why our list mainly includes Assyrtiko from Santorinian wineries in various ways of ageing, but also some even more rare white grape varieties of the island. Our selection includes some relatively new experiments in rose and red dry wines, from the rare local varieties “Mavrotragano” and “Mandilaria”. The rest of our wine list includes well known as well as unique Greek labels of white, rose and red dry wines from all over Greece. Our main grape varieties are “Xinomavro”, “Agiorgitiko”, “Limnio”, “Moschofilero”, “Malagouzia”, “Vidiano” etc.
In order to complete your meal, we also have a variety of dessert wines, with the local Vinsanto in the leading role, as well as several distillates and other liqueurs. Our menu and wine list complement each other: every year we enrich our wine selection based on our dishes, whereas we draw inspiration from the wines to create recipes which enhance their flavor, once combined with each other! Consult our experienced staff: They will suggest those wines which will best complement your chosen dishes, always taking into consideration your personal tastes. The wide range of wines by the glass will take you a short but enjoyable trip through the Greek wines.
