Welcome to Tsantali

“The question is not how much it will cost to bring this vineyard to life;
  the real question is whether it can give quality grapes or not.”
  Evangelos Tsantalis (1913-1996)                                                                                                                                                                                       mapvineyards

The Tsantali family has been cultivating vineyards, making wines and distilling ouzo and tsipouro since 1890.

Evangelos Tsantalis, second generation winemaker and one of the most charismatic figures in the Greek winemaking history, has rendered the local family business into a rapidly developing brand name, always at the forefront of innovation.

The vineyard has always been the core of the Tsantali philosophy. The rejuvenation of some of the most exquisite vineyards in Northern Greece like Mount Athos, Rapsani, Halkidiki and Maronia, is attributed to the family’s vision; thanks to the Tsantali’s dedication and strategic investment, today outstanding traditions are safely kept, biodiversity and native grapes are preserved and incentive has been given to younger vine growers and winemakers.

This long-standing heritage is carried on today by the third and fourth Tsantali generation. The goal remains a solid blend of deep respect for the identity of the vineyard, emphasis on quality and sustainable development, commitment to insightful entrepreneurship, and a seductive storytelling inspired by the “sense of place”.

Since 2012, TSANTALI is the exclusive distributor of SANTO WINES contributing to the establishment of the new SANTORINI brand.

A glass of your favorite Greek wine can be the first and/or last thing you do when visiting Greece for Christmas. At Athens International Airport, you can find "Le Grand Comptoir", a fine wine bar where you can have the warmest welcome, the sweetest farewell or just the smoothest decompress over a pour. At a cosy environment you can sit back and enjoy almost 20 different labels, half of them served by the glass; a fantastic voyage across some of the most stunning regions of Greece like Rapsani, Santorini, Mount Athos, Naoussa and Nemea. Smartly located at the "departure level" before passport control, the wine bar gives you the opportunity to enjoy a glass with friends that are not travelling with you. The menu also includes tasty snacks and dishes, perfect accompaniment to your wine selection.

Sausage and pepper dishes are found all over the world. Spetsofai is the Greek version, a regional specialty from Pelion and Volos in Central Greece.

Our red pick

Spice generally calls for wines with a touch of sweetness. Avoid reds that are heavily oaked though as oak-ageing tends to accentuate chilli heat. Go for a spicy, full-bodied red wine
