This was one of the last wineries which operated in Finikia village. The winery belonged to a rich family, and it is one exceptional building including a huge canava (domed wine factory) and residential chambers.

This impressive construction was built by Santorinian craftsmen using local materials like Aspa (volcanic ash), Poria (red volcanic stones) chipped around the doors and windows, gray and red volcanic stone stairs, traditional doors and traditional concrete floors. Iron railings in all windows were used as protection from the pirates.

The building (220 square meters) is arranged on two levels separating and its uses. The first level is the main area (canava), and the second – which is on a higher level by 1.5 m.are the bedrooms and bathrooms. This old winery was renovated in 1997-8 by a famous Greek architect and stands as a model of combining traditional architecture with industrial design.

The canava with impressive proportions and domed roof, is not caved but external, follow the typology of a large church due to constructional and operational reasons.

Build benches along the stone walls which were used to support the wine barrels, are now transformed to the steps of an amphitheater.

The main area (canava) is a living- dining room with an open kitchen. On the front side of the chamber, over the main entrance) there is a spacious open loft with a double bed. This is used as a third bedroom.
