What You Can Expect

Small-Group Santorini Wine Tasting and Vineyard Tour

Sample some of Santorini's top wines on this wine tasting tour

Book your daytime or sunset tour and start your experience with a hotel pickup. Your destinations depend on your chosen tour, and if you’re on the daytime tour, the day of the week selected.

Daytime Tour (available April 15 to November 7):
Travel by air-conditioned minibus to the first of the three traditional wineries and on route, learn from your guide about wine production on Santorini and discover the varietals that you may try during the day.

Producing some of the most distinctive wine in the Mediterranean, the island owes its success largely to aspa, a unique blend of volcanic soil that lends its wines a rich minerality and light flavor. Grapes are grown in baskets close to the ground, allowing much-needed moisture from the island’s minimal rainfall to be retained effectively.



At each winery, enjoy a cellar tour with your guide to see how the winemaking process unfolds, from harvesting to maturing the wine. Plus, walk around a volcanic vineyard to see the grapes first-hand, and sample glasses of Santorini wine galore – up to 12 glasses in total!

 Try popular varietals such as assyrtiko and vinsanto, and enjoy local delicacies such as cheese, bread and olives. At the third winery, you’ll also sit on an outdoor terrace, soaking up stunning views of the island and Aegean as you sip.

If your tour is any day except a Sunday, you’ll also stop at one of Santorini’s up-and-coming craft breweries. Learn what goes into the ales brewed here and end your visit by sampling some of its beers. 


After your explorations, end your tour with a hotel drop-off.

Sunset Tour (available June 1 to September 30):

After visiting two wineries, continue to the third winery in time for Santorini’s legendary sunset. Head to the open-air terrace and taste your wines against a stunning backdrop of the caldera and Aegean, just as the sun sets over the sea. Plus, enjoy a delicious extra surprise here before finishing your trip with a hotel drop-off.

Please note: the visit to a brewery is not included on daytime tours taken on Sundays or the sunset tour option.

Fantastic tour! Very unique and enriching experience as Assyrtiko is indigenous to the island of Santorini. Would highly recommend for couples or wine connoisseurs.

The guide is nice and knowledgeable, he explained the characteristics and stories of Santorini wine and the mechanism behind the chemistry between food and wine nicely and in detail, even people like me and my girlfriend, who knew nothing about wine can understand him very well and enjoy the trip very much.

This is a must do for any person that likes wines. Dennis our tour guide / driver gave us a great insight into the Santorini way of producing wine, quite unique. With only a small group we had a personal tour of 2 Wineries with plenty of tastings along the way. Just when you think it cant get any better Dennis escorts you to the best seat in the house to watch the sunset and sample more boutique wines. The pickup was on time and the trip was done at a very comfortable pace. Well done to all concerned.

It was an amazing tour! Stamatis was an extremely knowledgable sommelier who kept the tour educational but also fun! The food pairings with the wines was an excellent addition to the wines. I loved that it was only 8 people because it was very intimate and we all became friends by the end of the tour. The sunset view at the end was spectacular and we even had a few surprises along the way. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Fantastic day out. Great presentation and food. Learnt a lot about the wines and pairings with food. Great scenery from the first tasting. Initially I was not going to do the trip because of my fear of heights but I did the cable car and it was a breeze and then to have this trip at the top was great. Thank you.
