As a young newlywed couple in 1953 in Sifnos, Giannis and Flora had only their love for each other and for Mother Earth as equipment for their future life. With water lacking on their farm, they started digging a well, hoping to find some but it became impossible to continue after 15 meters of depth. All their efforts were in vain. They had only managed to dig what is commonly known in Greece as a ‘dry well’ (xeropigado). Having no other choice, they slowly refilled it; yet their dream of finding water and their vision for a verdant garden all year round was not lost. The rest of the story you will learn on-site while being treated to a glass of fine organic biological wine, accompanied by a dish of homegrown fresh tomatoes and cheese!
