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. Milestones 1938: First winery in Serres, Northeastern Greece 1945: First distillery in Thessaloniki 1948: Xinomavro cultivation in Naoussa 1962: First exports begin 1969: Mount Athos vineyards revival 1971: TSANTALI S.A. foundation 1991: Rapsani terroir rejuvenation 1996: Certified organic cultivation is implemented 2007: “Official Purveyor of Kremlin Russia” title TSANTALI offices in Moscow & St Petersburg 2010: TSANTALI Asia foundation 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. TSANTALI SUCCESS STORIES From day one, the TSANTALI orientation was extrovert, even at the most harsh times during wars and political instability. In 1962 the first exports became a reality for the Tsantali family, opening to markets with significant Greek population as Germany, Belgium, Holland, Austria and USA. At the same time, the strategic investment in the revival of unique vineyards as in Mount Athos and Rapsani, offered to the family the added-value products able to attract the world’s attention. Today TSANTALI is the proud holder of some of the most important success stories in the history of Greek winemaking. Official Purveyor of Kremlin In Russia one of the most prestigious wine success stories in the history of Greek wine making is achieved. For the first time, the honorary title of “Official Purveyor of Kremlin” is attributed to a winery. And that winery is a Greek one, ours. A very unique and of limited production wine, Kormilitsa Gold, is the Official wine of Kremlin, produced at Mount Athos vineyards, at a very selective low yields vineyard, organically cultivated. The certification of the wine lasted for more than 3 years of thorough examination by the Kremlin. Our wine is part of every official ceremony that takes place in Kremlin, as Presidential inauguration. TSANTALI Chain of 25 Stores in China We set foot in China, the new “el dorado” for the global wine industry, in 2008 after a long market research. Today 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.
