Why visit: "If you know Santorini, you'll know of the late Haridimos Hatzidakis, 'The Wizard of Wine'. He was a mastermind who toiled for decades, conducting innovative, industry-leading work that still reverberates today. Considered by many to be the most talented winemaker to ever grace the island, he was a fearless champion for natural farming and low-intervention winemaking. His vinous creations first impressed locals in the 90s, then importers, before eventually making their way onto top wine lists and into shops around the world. Today, his daughters oversee this jewel-box estate and its newly built, state-of-the-art winery. It's by appointment only - but worth the hassle."
What to try: "Keep an eye out for assyrtiko, the white wine grape native to Santorini. At Hatzidakis, the Skitali and Cuvée No.15 assyrtikos are a must. If you're lucky, they'll uncork an older nykteri for you."
