"Gerontampelo" means the very old vines in Santorini's local dialect. Our "Gerontampelos" are sourced from prephylloxeric "koulouras" that exceed the 150 years old. These "veterans" give extremely tiny yields and are well known for their unbeatable elegance and their balanced richness. ..

The kouloura, basket shaped, and training system of Santorini was developed, out of millennia of trial and error, as a response or even consequence of this bizarre growing environment.The compact shape of the basket protects inside it the flowers and later the fruit from the severe winds, while it also traps humidity. The downside of it is low, very low yields. .. When the above ground part of the vine, the basket, gets too big and too hard to work with, it is removed, while a cane close to the root system, undisturbed by Phylloxera, is kept to provide growth for the new basket.

Therefore, the age of the above-ground part of the vines in Santorini is usually different from that of the root system, which can exceed one or even two centuries. Santorini, for sure, contains some of the oldest vitis vinifera specimens in the world.
