What You Can Expect

Santorini Small-Group Cooking Class and Wine Tasting

Enjoy a visit to Santorini wineries

After a hotel pickup, chat with your guide about the island’s cuisine and travel to your first stop. Hear about the wine and the island’s characteristic volcanic soil — known as aspa — that helps produce wine with abundant mineral flavors and light notes.

Stop at a volcanic winery to sample your first glasses of wine, and then continue to the second winery of the day to learn about the different varietals produced on the island: assyrtiko, nykteri and vinsanto.

Your next stop is the Donkey Brewery, a producer of Santorini’s craft beer. Sip on three samples of fresh, unfiltered beer, and learn about the island’s burgeoning craft beer scene. From there, it’s on to your cooking class.

Under the watchful eye of your chef, help prepare a feast of local dishes. What you cook is decided on the day, but you can expect classics such as a tomato-flavored fritters, traditional Greek salad, and pork fillet caramelized with the sweet vinsanto wine.

When your food is ready, sit down to eat. Help yourself to wine to complement your creations, and finish with a glass of vinsanto to end your meal in the local way. With your take-home recipes in hand, you’ll then return to your vehicle and finish with a hotel drop-off.

Highly recommended. It was even better than we had hoped it would be. Our tour guide was exceptional - very knowledgable!! The cooking class was our favorite part, and the meal was decided the best one we had in all of Greece!!!

Dennis and Chef Chris were amazing. There were copious amounts of food and wine and we will definitely be making some of the recipes at home. Dennis was very knowledgeable about the wines.

Dennis as the best wine tour guide that I have ever had. I have done a lot of wine tours, but he was truly the best. He was engaging and extremely knowledgeable. And the cooking class was wonderful followed by an amazing meal.
I would suggest this to anyone.

What an indulgent way to spend a day! Beautiful wines and amazing food! We learnt so much about wine tasting and the different wines specific to Santorini. Our tour guide was so friendly and knowledgable. We visited three wineries which included cellar tours and nibbles/food pairings. Tour ended with a cooking class at the final winery Artemis Karamolegos. Chef was a superb teacher and we had so much fun. We got a copy of the recipes we cooked. Following this the chef then prepared a three course meal for the group which was absolutely divine! The tour went for approx 8 hours instead of 5 so don't make dinner reservations for after the tour, you won't need it anyway with the constant wine top ups and bountiful food! Highly recommend this tour!

Denis was incredible. You will not regret booking this super intimate, incredibly educational, but mostly fun wine tour and cooking class. You can do, eat and drink as much as you like or as little as you like. The scenery is incredible and the guide can't be beat. Worth every penny end of story.

The tour and our guide was amazing. The wine tour and cooking class were great. They exceeded our expectations. We would highly recommend it. The guide also took us for a beer tasting at Donkey Brewing and to the highest point of the island. These were nice additions to our trip. Wonderful day.

What a blast! Our driver and wine guide, Eliassp? was extremely knowledgable and fun. We visited Boutari and Gavalas for tours and education and then Karamegalos for wine and cooking class. We ate while cooking and then were surprised to be seated for another meal of all of the foods we helped prepare. It was too much food, but an amazing experience. We enjoyed meeting the other six people on the tour with us and are greatful that the experience taught us so much about Santorian wine.
