Hatzidakis Winery was founded in 1997 by Haridimos and Konstantina Hatzidakis. Konstantina's family owns vineyards in the village of Pyrgos Kallistis, on the road that leads to the monastery of Prophet Ilias. The land had not been cultivated since 1956, when the earthquake on Santorini forced her parents to leave the island. After extensive re-planting and nurturing of older vines, they found a cave, which was transformed into a winery. The vineyards sit at 300 metres facing north to north-east.
