UK-based wine importer and wholesaler Flint Wines has expanded its portfolio with the addition of the first-ever Greek winery.

The wine importer will add three new Assyrtiko wine expressions of Santorini-based Vassaltis Vineyards.

Flint will be the official agent for Vassaltis Vineyards in the UK market.

The wines are available for distribution immediately.

Vassaltis Vineyards owner Yannis Valambous said: “We are excited and honoured to be joining the spectacular portfolio of Flint wines as their first Greek producer.

“As a small winery, Vassaltis is committed to creating high-quality wines, always expressing the extraordinary terroir of Santorini. Flint’s experience in providing top-class wines to the UK market, along with their dynamism, make us confident that our wines are in good hands.

“We look forward to introducing the full range of our wines to Flint’s discerning clients.”

Vassaltis Vineyards is a boutique winery, which produced its first vintage in 2014.

Vassaltis wines are produced using Assyrtiko wine grapes by Yannis and a team of two oenologists.

Flint said that the quality of wine produced by Vassaltis is on par with some of the best white wine producers worldwide, many of them that it already represents.

Flint Wines Trade Sales director Gearoid Devaney said: “We are so excited to have the opportunity to work with Vassaltis, these are high-quality wines with drive, focus, and lots of personality. We are looking forward to introducing these special wines to our customers.”
