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.

Booked the sunset surprise and it was an amazing day to learn about the wines from the island. Our guide was a wonderful, friendly and knowledgeable sommelier. The food pairings were so much fun too.

This trip was fabulous. The wineries were wonderful as well as the pairings with each one. The sunset at Venetsanos was breathtaking. Our sommelier was very knowledgable and made us feel like a friend--not a client. Wonderful evening!

Exceptional wine tasting experience. We really enjoyed the tour guide, small group, and learning how different types of food change/enhance the wine.

Great tour! We had been sampling Santorini wines during the trip and before our arrival, so this tour was a must do. We were picked up and taken to the first stop where we met our guide - a professional sommelier in Greece. His wine knowledge was excellent and he made the process very approachable for all and there were some novices on the tour!. We also learned about Santorini history and saw a beautiful sunset. Best of all - we were delivered right back to our hotel after our TWELVE tastes of wine.

Very fun - we would do it again!

Our tour guide was knowledgeable and passionate, and the wineries and restaurant were well chosen for their selections, variety, and accommodation of our group. Completely made us fall in love with the regions wines and look for them back home!

An amazing experience: we were picked up at the hotel by Stannos, brought to the first vineyard and given a warm welcome by Dennis and the other participants of the wine tour. Dennis is an expert: he told us everything we needed to know about the Santorini wines, showed us how to smell and taste them, gave us some local cheeses to pair the wines with...The last vineyard we visited was a dream that view! Absolutely recommended if you like wine and good company.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

This tour was amazing! we got picked up by a private fully air conditioned sedan and were taken to the first winery were we met our guide Ilias and the rest of the group. We visited three wineries in all with the last one being spectacular sine we got to see the sunset from there. The tour was informative with understandable wine jargon and we also got to pair the food with the wine by actually tasting and checking which food goes with which wine. Definitely a tour to recommend!

We had a great time during our wine tasting and vineyard tour! We were only three couples in total and since we were about the same age, we got along very well.
