The story of the winerybehind Pure started in the 18th century, established as a canava, the traditional term used in Santorini for describing a winery. As most canavas, this was mainly an underground cellar, mainly made out of volcanic stones. In 2013, the canava was totally renovated in order to host the VSV winery.
