The Union of Santorini Cooperatives, named as SantoWines, was founded in 1947. Today, SantoWines, the biggest wine producer of the island, has approximately 2500 members that equals to the total number of the producers of the island, while 1000 of them are active.
Association's main activities are:
Production, bottling and commerce of bottled and bulk wine.
Production, canning and commerce of tomato products.
Management of fertilizers, forages and agricultural equipment.
Commerce of pesticides.
After the year 1980 the tomato production was reduced due to diminished yield, thus the main activity of SantoWines is now the wine production, bottling and commerce.
Wine for us is art, made with love and care…. and for that reason we have gathered all the necessary elements…
We built a new, state of the art winery in 1992 and having as our main concern the continuous improvement of the quality of our wines, SantoWines people, with care and respect for the 3500 years of Santorini wine tradition, create our famous awarded wines Appellation of Origin Santorini of High Quality.
The headquarters and the winery are established in Santorini in the traditional village of Pyrgos, while it is a branch in Athens in Kolonos region for the serving of the customers from mainland Greece. The increased competition and the new challenges of the domestic and international markets necessitated the renovation of SantoWines and the company's strategy.
Towards this direction, a new high technology winery was established, new investments took place regarding the company's machinery and human resources while at the same time new distribution networks were applied.
SantoWines has distribution network in whole Greece and exports its products to Europe (France, Germany), to the US, and to Canada.
The target of SantoWines aims to make known its wines throughout the world so that everyone remembers that wine's history started here, in the land of Dionysus!
