Peering out across the ancient caldera into the Agean from just about any spot on top of the beautiful Greek island of Santorini, you could be forgiven for mistaking the place for the edge of the world. And when I say “beautiful” I don’t mean beautiful in the “my backyard garden is beautiful” sense of the word; I mean beautiful in the “top ten most beautiful places on planet Earth” kind of beautiful.
Ask me to mention the one wine blog I enjoy reading the most and I’ll have to say Joe Roberts 1WineDude. Earlier this summer I followed his articles on Santorini and I recommend you also give the whole article – Terroir At The Edge Of The World (In The Vineyards of Santorini) – some minutes of your time. Click here to go to 1WineDude and the Santorini story.
The opening of Joe’s Santorini article is reprinted with the author’s kind permission.
