Liastos

Greek name for a sweet wine produced from dried grapes in the manner of a straw wine, The name derives from the Greek sun god Helios (Helios = Sun). The grapes are dried slowly before being pressed on straw mats in the sun, which gives them an extremely high level of sugar and extractives. The name may only be used for sweet wines, which were not gespritet. Examples are versions of the Samos and of Vinsanto from the island of Santorini.
