The story of our winery begins with grandfather Artemis Karamolegos cultivating his vineyard in Exo Gonia. He mainly produces wine for his family, but he also sells wine.
Artemis Karamolegos’ son, Vangelis,
takes over the wine production,
but again, not at a professional level.
Artemis oversees the renewal of the old vineyard. He plants rare traditional Santorini varieties of grape such as Assyrtiko, Aidani and Mavrotragano. He starts selling the winery’s first bottled wines, Santorini, Nykteri and Vinsanto, on the local market
The winery in Exo Gonia is expanded to house the entire wine production and bottling line including wine presses, fermentation and maturation tanks, vinificators, stabilisers, coolers, filters and pumps. A new label is added to the winery's range, the red Terra Νera.
He redesigns the labels for the existing wines and changes the name of the winery from San…Torini Winery to Artemis Karamolegos Winery. Artemis launches five more new wines on the market: Assyrtiko, Assyrtiko Barrel Aged, white and rosé Terra Nera and Mavrotragano. He also starts to distribute these wines throughout Greece and wines are exported to America, England, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland and Holland.
Wine-tastings are held in the winery’s new cellar which was built in 2013. The winery’s partnership with Foodrinco begins, and wines from the winery are distributed throughout Greece. The Aroma Avlis restaurant opens, and diners can enjoy its wonderful yard filled with scents from aromatic Greek plants, or relax in the stylish modern décor of the restaurant’s interior. The restaurant serves Mediterranean and local cuisine, and also has a shop selling select local products and wine from the winery.
Artemis Karamolegos’s wines become the wine of choice for many, and their reputation grows and grows. With the guided tours of the winery, the wine tastings, the food in the Aroma Avlis, the cooking lessons and the exhibitions, the winery is brimming with life all day long. The restaurant’s second yard, with a view of the vineyards and the Aegean Sea, also opens at this time. The experience offered by a visit to the Artemis Karamolegos winery is complete.
The distinctions are continuing: we received Gold Medal for Vinsanto 2007 at Mundus Vini 2016 and TEXSOM IWA 2016, Silver Medal for Assyrtiko 2015 at the same competitions and Silver Medal for Santorini 2015 at Mundus Vini. We invest in human resources as Lefteris Anagnostou, Viticulturist-Winemaker, becomes member of our team. We keep promoting our wines in important markets as New York, San Francisco, Toronto, Melbourne through international exhibitions and presentations.
