The Villa, a compound on the prehistoric settlement of Akrotiri in Santorini, was a traditional winery. Founded in 1926, the winery produced various wines made with grapes from the ancient vineyards of the island of Thira. Grapes were stomped with the makers’ feet at the winery’s main building and no mechanical presses were used. The grapes were stomped into must in the winepresses, which are preserved in their original state in the building. The must was later put into oakwood barrels and moved to the hollow building Villa, to age. The marble inscriptions, the oak barrels, the vineyard winch, the winepress, the clay pots and some of the tools used in the winemaking process, are all part of the Villa decoration, today. The compound was fully renovated with the proper respect to the site’s history in order to give the visitor the chance to experience a time journey to a long gone era, while providing a unique experience of luxurious hospitality.
