TSANTALI Vineyards & Wineries: Growing since 1890
For four generations now the Tsantali family shares the love of the unique Greek vineyards and the secret of making quality wines and distillates. This tradition, coupled with vision and insight, rendered TSANTALI into a rapidly developing company whose products are available today in 55 countries around the world.
In Greece we manage vineyards in 14 viticulture zones across the country and wineries in Halkidiki, Mount Athos, Rapsani, Naousa and Maronia in Thrace. Through strategic partnerships (SANTO WINES from Santorini Island) we bring the new wines of Greece to the world.
OUR MISSION - A vineyard is a field of choices
And that is what it all comes down to. For us in TSANTALI safeguarding our 120-year-old tradition as a family company with worldwide projection remains the core of our philosophy.
Sincerity, responsibility and respect towards our consumers, our industry and our people are the key elements of our everyday conduct. We want to be present, eager to support the local communities, to preserve the environment, to promote the authenticity of the Greek viticulture and to stand out as a pioneer of entrepreneurship.
OUR HERITAGE - Roots are one’s compass in life
It was in 1890 in the northeastern of Greece when the Tsantali family first started cultivating vineyards and making wine and traditional Greek distillates (ouzo and tsipouro).
The insight and instinct of Evangelos Tsantalis led to the development of all infrastructures according to an extrovert-oriented strategy of no prior for the time (1940s). Moreover, thanks to his profound passion for the local terroirs, some of the most unique Greek vineyards were revived.
OUR COMMITMENT - Devotion in aiming high
Our vision has always been paired to Quality (HACCP, AGROCERT, Organic Cultivation), Responsibility (Sustainable farming, standing by local traditions and communities, wine education), Innovation (Both In the vineyards and the entrepreneurship field).
For us success cannot be achieved if the standards are not kept high at all times, if the effort is not ongoing, if an accomplished goal is not replaced by a new one.
Today TSANTALI is the proud holder of some of the most important success stories in the history of Greek winemaking. In 2007 the honorary title of “Official Purveyor of Kremlin Moscow” was attributed for the first time ever to a winery, TSANTALI, for the limited production organic wine from Mount Athos KORMILITSA GOLD. In China we are the only Greek winery with a chain of franchising stores reaching a market of 200 million consumers. At the moment the Tsantali chain includes 25 stores and dozens of corner shops in 5 peripheries of the country. By the end of 2015, the number of our stores will reach 150.
