Winemaking & Appreciation

The IdeaEPTA (seven in Greek) is the epitome of a fascinating, pioneering exploration of Santorini sub-terroirs by Domaine Sigalas. Seven rigorously selected vine parcels from seven villages across the island (Oia, Imerovigli, Vourvoulos, Fira, Pyrgos, Megalochori and Akrotiri) shape the canvas of this unique project. Each year we harvest and vinify each village separately. What we consider to be the very best of all seven is used for EPTA wine. For 2022 vintage, the chosen village is Pyrgos

WinemakingTypical white vinification in stainless steel tank under controlled temperature. Lees contact for 12 months with periodic lees stirring (batonnage).

Tasting NoteComplex nose with the dominant floral aromas to be accompanied by notes of stone fruit (peach) and by citrus (lemon). Full body with vibrant acidity that unveils a remarkable balance. A combination of finesse and layers. Long aftertaste.
