What You Can Expect
After sampling some of the wine, continue to your second traditional Santorini winery to learn more about the various types of Santorini wine that is produced on the island. Hear about assytriko, a widely cultivated white-wine grape, as well as wines such as nykteri and vinsanto that are both made from assytriko but boast entirely different flavors. Try a few more glasses of wine, and then travel to a nearby traditional Greek restaurant for your cooking class.
Meet the chef – your cooking teacher – and then roll up your sleeves to help out with the preparation of several traditional Greek dishes. As you cook, listen to stories about the country’s gastronomy from your chef and learn about the typical dishes of Santorini. While the dishes cooked during your class will vary each time, you can expect to cook some Santorini staples such as tomato fritters alongside Greek classics, perhaps moussaka or a classic Greek salad.
Towards the end of your session, sit down with your chef and group to eat your creations! Water is served alongside the dishes, and you can also try a popular liquor – raki or ouzo – to finish your meal just like the locals.
Before bidding your chef a fond farewell, take a recipe card to recreate the dishes back at home. Then, return to your minibus and finish your Santorini food experience 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!
Great days,lots of information.fantastic food and wine
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.
This tour was amazing!
