To get more in-depth about the vines and the unique white wine that comes from Assyrtiko grapes, peruse my latest post on Foodista:

Of course, none of us on the trip were immune to the lure of a photograph with these ancient vines:

And I will admit it being nice to grab some shade after posing in the sun. You can read the recap of our visit from the perspective of Wines from Santorini on their blog.

Have you seen my Pinterest board with some of my favorite photos from Santorini? It only took me about 5,000 hours to do, but I’m pretty happy with the results. (Though I probably could have been more creative with the title.)
