Vassaltis is Santorini's newest winery with construction being completed only in April 2016. With the financial crisis hitting Greece, Yannis Valambous decides to return to Santorini to revive the vineyards he inherited from his late father. A year later he decides to pursue a dream the seemed too distant to ever materialize; the creation of a winery. His vision is to create a modern state of the art winery to express the next generation of Greek winemakers. Along with Elias Roussakis and Yannis Papaeconomou who join the team as oenologists they are out to prove that Santorini can produce world class wine and that Greeks can deliver big results if and when they are given the opportunity.
