Melitis Restaurant of Santorini Crystal Blue Suites holds a high position in customers’ preferences. It is a warm, cozy beach restaurant with lounge music, suitable for all times of the day.
But what “Melitis” really means? The family’s canava, “Canava Roussos” is the oldest in the island – founded in 1836. The grand-father of the hotel owner used to produce a wine which was a combination of must and honeycombs. After harvesting the grapes and treading-press them, he put the must in the barrels. When boiling began, he placed the honeycombs within the must, for a specified period. He then removed the honeycombs and placed them again, shortly before the final ripening of the wine. He named his wine "Melitis", the wine that comes out of meli (= honey). Unfortunately, due to EU regulation which had forbidden the combination of plant and animal products, the production of this kind of wine has stopped. The name, however, is for the family the link between the past and the present.
