Stone at the Haridimos Hatzidakis winery
Facebook post from Vasilis Ioannou
I was very shocked and sorry to learn on Friday evening that the inspirational winemaker Haridimos Hatzidakis, based in in Santorini and making wonderful wines – world class Assyrtiko, had died suddenly that day.
I will treasure the couple of visits that I made to Hatzidakis winery on the Greek island of Santorini. The pleasure of meeting and tasting with him as well as visiting and seeing the remarkable coiled and curled vines on Santorini.
He was one of the leaders of the recent renaissance of Greek wines and will be sorely missed.
My sincere condolences to Haridimos’ family and close friends. The cause of Haridimos’ death is as yet unknown.
