The Avantis domain was founded in 1994 by the producer Apostolos Mountrichas. It is located 65 km north of Athens, just 45 minutes from the northern suburbs of Attica and just 5 minutes away from the center of Chalkida.
One of Greece's top white varieties, Assyrtiko is best-known as the flagship grape of Santorini, producing crisp white wines. It has developed a reputation as being a versatile grape variety. Wines are made in a multitude of styles, from fresh, minerally white wines to rich, nutty dessert wines .
Santorini island's warm, dry climate means that vine yields are universally low. The island's vineyards give small harvests of high-quality grapes with naturally high levels of sugars and acidity. Another significant advantage of the dry, sandy soils is that they are almost entirely free of phylloxera insects, which cannot live in fine-grained, loose-structured soils.
