Wild caper is a bush born in the steep slopes of Santorini Caldera and the volcanic stone-built walls between the vineyards of the island. From the wild capers, we at GreekBioStore carefully collect by hand both the flowers and leaves. Capers are perennial winter deciduous plants that are mostly native to the Mediterranean area. They are rich in antioxidants, vitamins (Vitamin A, Vitamin B12, Vitamin E, Vitamin K), minerals, fiber, and niacin. Santorini capers are larger in size, quite juicy, and have a unique tangy & lemony taste. They're a versatile ingredient for salads, fish, and other light calorie culinary creations. They do not only add some vibrant flavor to your meals, but they are also known for their immense health benefits while being very light food. A single tablespoon of capers contains just two calories! Hence capers can be a good option if you are following a low-calorie diet.

There are some places in this world which appear to be exactly the opposite: otherworldly.

A breathtaking landscape and unparalleled architecture have rendered Santorini a world-class destination. The story behind the island is equally fascinating; Santorini came about after one of the largest volcanic eruptions on Earth in recorded history. During the eruption, the centre of the island collapsed thousands of feet into the sea, forming the famous Caldera of Santorini. This landmark created spectacular views throughout the island and is truly one of the natural wonders of the world. The destruction left the main island of Thira in a half-moon shape and also created a group of smaller islands that make up Santorini. They are Thirassia and Aspronisi.

You can taste the island’s history through the exceptional wines, capers, fava beans (a special kind of yellow split pea), and tomatoes (tomataki) that are solely produced here.

Known for its breathtaking scenery, Santorini also provides an amazing culinary experience. Due to the unique terroir, the island produces specialties that can only be found here. The anhydrous climate, the volcanic soil, the cooling winds, and the dense humid nights, combined with the unique varieties cultivated on the island, contribute to the creation of delicacies nobody can resist.
