Type of Grape

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.
