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.

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

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!
