The Boutari company was founded in 1879 by Ioannis Boutaris and is one of the historic wineries in Greece. It operates six wineries in Greece in some of the most important wine-producing areas (Naoussa, Goumenissa, Crete, Santorini, Mantinia and Attica) and one in the South of France.
The broad variety of its products, which include more than 40 labels, cover an extensive range of preferences by consumers around the world.
Awards such as the International Winery of the Year 2010 award, earned for the 13th time, and the European Winery of the Year 2008 award testify to the exceptional work being carried out by the company’s wine-making team and the emphasis it places on quality.
The philosophy of the Boutari company is to promote wine culture in Greece by bringing consumers closer to wines through a broad range of high-quality wines for every occasion.
In the international field, the company’s goal is to be one of the leading ambassadors of Greek wines, highlighting Greek grape varieties and the unique locations where top-quality wines are produced.
The Boutari company became actively involved with the Santorini vineyards in the mid-1980s. The privately owned Boutari vineyard of about 6 hectares was first cultivated in 1992 and its planting was completed two years later. The varieties selected were mostly the local whites, such as Assyrtiko, Athiri and Aidani, as well others being grown experimentally.
The Boutari (Santorini) – Domaine Selladia Winery has been open to the public since 1990 and offers visitors complete tour services. The Boutari (Santorini) – Domaine Selladia winery produces Santorini Boutari, Kalisti Reserve, Kalisti, Selladia, Nychteri Boutari, Vinsanto Boutari and Ambeliastos.
