What You Can Expect

Small-Group Santorini Wine Tasting and Vineyard Tour

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

Both the day and sunset tour include hotel pickup and drop-off. The wineries you visit are dependent on the tour you choose.

Day Tour: (April 1 – November 15)
Meet your guide and relax on the journey to the island’s wine estates. Admire the countryside as you go, and chat with your guide about winemaking in Santorini and the area’s unique viticulture.

With its volcanic aspa soil, Santorini is able to produce wine that is rich in minerals with light-flavored notes. The island’s grapes are grown in baskets that are set close to the soil — an act that helps moisture from rain to be retained.

Tour the cellars of each wine estate, and follow the production process through from harvesting the grapes through to maturing the wine. Walk with your guide around one of the estate’s volcanic vineyards, and sip on up to 12 different varietals of the island wine, including local vinsanto and assyrtiko. Nibbles such as olives, bread and cheese are also included.

When you reach the last winery, sit down on an outdoor terrace and drink in the views with wine and a plate of tapas.

Sunset Tour: (May 15 – September 30)
Enjoy the tour as described above, but arrive at your last wine estate in time to watch the sun set. Make your way to the open terrace for an alfresco wine tasting with views of the Santorini caldera set against the Aegean Sea. Before you return to your hotel, there’s time for one last treat. Find out what on the day!

This tour was a great way to spend a day in Santorini. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable about wine and made sure everyone was enjoying themselves. This was also a great way to see other parts of the island that you would not see if you stayed only in Fira or Oia. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and came away with a better knowledge of Greek wine.

What a great tour! The guide was very knowledable and provided the right amount of information without going too much into detail. Loved the differenes in the 3 different wineries and the bonus of being able to stop at the new brewery. We did the tour at the beginning of our trip, which was helpful because it gave us some insight into the local wines and we were better prepared to order at dinner. :

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!
