What You Can Expect

Small-Group Santorini Wine Tasting and Vineyard Tour

Enjoy tasting different types of Greek Wine during this tour around Santorini

Start your wine tour with a hotel pickup, and then travel in air-conditioned comfort by minibus to your first of three traditional wineries in Santorini. As you travel, chat with your friendly guide about the history of wine production on the island, and learn about the different varietals that you may try throughout the day.

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

At each of the wineries, enjoy a cellar tour with your guide to see how the winemaking process unfolds, from harvesting the grapes to bottling and maturing the wine. Take a walk around one of the volcanic vineyards to see the grapes growing in the unforgiving island conditions and, of course, sample glasses of Santorini wine galore – up to 12 glasses in total!

Try popular varietals such as assyrtiko, nykteri and the rich vinsanto, and enjoy a platter of local delicacies including cheese, salami, bread and olives to complement and balance out the flavors of the wine.

After four hours exploring three of the most interesting wineries in Santorini, your guide will drop you off at your hotel where your wine tour finishes.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

This tour was fun, informative and a really good day out. Knowledgable guide was friendly and professional and very good at getting the group to interact and enjoy the day. Definitely recommend it!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

This was a great tour. Our driver/guide/sommelier Stamatis took our group of 10 to 3 Santorini wineries, providing us with a detailed explanation of the island's history and its peculiar viticulture. We sampled twelve different wines along the way. As an added bonus, he took us to a local nano - brewery where we sampled their three kinds of beer. The tour was advertised to last four hours but actually took six, an indication of Stamatis' professionalism and love for his craft. Would highly recommend this tour.
