The grapes come from a hillside vineyard, 800 metres north of the winery, which is protected from the northerly winds. The eight year old vines have been orientated to maximise exposure to the sun. Trained using a unique bilateral cordon system developed by their father, the vines are low to the ground, protecting from the very windy conditions of the Cyclades region. The vineyard is characterised by its terraces, which make it difficult to use machinery, therefore cultivation is by hand. The soil in the vineyards is rocky schist, imparting distinctive mineral flavours to the wine; it is also high in clay content which retains moisture, nourishing the vines through the hot, dry summer. Rainfall is scarce on Ios, with only double the rainfall of the Sahara desert, and as a result, yields are low and the resulting wines are rich in flavour. Following a philosophy of natural viticulture, chemical pesticides and fertilisers are not used in the vineyards. The practices used are close to organic, with a copper-sulphur solution being sprayed as a preventative measure following rain. Manual harvesting takes place during the cooler hours from dawn until 10am.

Inspired by working with the legendary Haridimos Hatzidakis on neighbouring Santorini, brothers Alex and Angelos Delis established this tiny micro-winery in 2015. Located on the island of Ios, the vineyard is planted with suitable Aegean grapes such as Monemvasia and Assyrtiko, on soils which are mainly schist, imparting incredible minerality to the wines. The wines are made as ‘naturally as possible’, in a gravity-fed winery using only minimal sulphur at bottling. They make miniscule amounts of wine;
normally the only place you can try their wines is on Ios.
