A Wine

On Friday, October 14th, the well-known wine maker and current mayor of Thessaloniki, Yannis Boutaris, was awarded at the Petros Nomikos Conference Center in Santorini, at a ceremony held in terms of the 1st International Wine Tourism Congress (IMIC 2016). The mayor of Thira underlined the importance of Yannis Boutaris’s initiative to found the first modern and visitable winery in Santorini back in 1989, that was meant to be a large part of the island’s vine-dressing evolution as well as the commercial development and promotion of Santorinian wines all around the world. In an emotional note, Mr. Boutaris stated the life investment of a vine-dresser and wine maker who works for and looks into the future.
