Precious medals

Santorini made an impressive showing at the recent Decanter World Wine Awards. North American wine lovers now have another standard by which to judge Santorini wines. The Decanter World Wine Awards medalled a number of wines, showing the world that though Santorini is the “stuff of myth,” its indigenous varieties are not. Ten medals were awarded across the categories, with two regional trophies recognizing Top 10 placements. Congratulations to these winners!
