Voudomato is an ancient red-wine grape variety native to Greece. It is extremely rare, and what plantings there are are found mostly on the island of Santorini. Some growers claim to have ungrafted vines that are more than 500 years old. Voudomato in Greek means ‘bull’s eye’.

The variety is used to produce mostly dry red wines, some single-varietal, some blends. It has also been used as table grapes. One innovative winemaker, Hatzidakis, has even made an incredibly sweet Voudomato dessert wine which contains a colossal 280g/L of residual sugar.
