The privately owned Selladia vineyard with an area of approximately 60 acres, was planted for the first time in 1992 and was fully completed two years later. The location of the estate is in the south, on the "warm" side of the island. The sparsely planted estate consists of about 250 plants per acre. The prevailing microclimate conditions are distinctive. The altitude begins at 105 and reaches 140 meters. Temperatures are lower than those in the surrounding Cycladic islands, rainfall is rare, and winds reach very high speeds. That's why the plants are pruned low in the shape of a basket. The grapes are placed in the middle and protected from strong winds. Dense night fog supplies them with moisture that they absorb and retain. The soil is sandy, of volcanic nature, and covered with scoria, lava and pumice stone. These uncommon conditions have lead to a small amount of production, premature maturation and a healthy state for the grapes. The varieties selected were mainly the local white ones, such as Asyrtiko, Athiri and Aidani, and some others that have been experimentally cultivated.
