Volcan Wines, founded in 1880 by Grigoris and Dimitris Koutsoyannopoulos, has become known for its leading role in support of the ancient winemaking and cultural traditions of this unique volcanic island. The winery is now being lead by George, the 4th generation of Koutsoyannopoulos winemakers, who has continued the family’s commitment to developing the huge potential of the island’s unique indigenous varieties, including Assyrtiko, Aidani, Mavrotragano, Mavrathiro and Mandilaria. The winery also features an impressive underground museum that recreates the winemaking traditions of generations past. – Description from Constance Chamberlain

  • Volcan Wines Kamaritis 2001

    Snoothrank:

    Made it a secret recipe belonging to the families great-grandfather, this sweet wine is produced in absolutely limited numbers. For this reason it is not found on sale outside the winery. It is aged for ten years in oak barrels before bottling. Read More

  • Volcan Wines Vinsanto 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Heavy mouth feel with the constancy of syrup. Sun dried 14 days and aged 2-4 years in oak barrels giving a strong full-oak taste. It has an intense reddish brown color. It has the intense aromas of coffee, caramel, dried fruit, jam, raisins and dried nuts. It is very sweet on the palate with an acidity that keeps everything in balance. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Fruity aroma with a fresh fruit taste that is full, yet soft. A velvety mouth feel that leads in to a nice oak finish. Slightly unbalanced acidity attributed to the volcanic rock that the soil is composed of. Read More
