What To Expect

After a hotel pickup, chat with your guide about the island’s cuisine and travel to your first stop. Hear about the wine and the island’s characteristic volcanic soil — known as aspa — that helps produce wine with abundant mineral flavors and light notes.

Stop at a volcanic winery to sample your first glasses of wine, and then continue to the second winery of the day to learn about the different varietals produced on the island: assyrtiko, nykteri and vinsanto.

From there, it’s on to your cooking class. Under the watchful eye of your chef, help prepare a feast of local dishes. What you cook is decided on the day, but you can expect classics such as a tomato-flavored fritters, traditional Greek salad, and pork fillet caramelized with the sweet vinsanto wine.

When your food is ready, sit down to eat. Help yourself to wine to complement your creations, and finish with a glass of vinsanto to end your meal in the local way. With your take-home recipes in hand, you’ll then return to your vehicle and finish with a hotel drop-off.

Highlight for Santorini trip
Robin_C, Oct 2021
The tour was amazing! Angelo was a great host. He’s very knowledgeable about the various type of wine. Great service from picking up right at the hotel and dropping right back in front of the hotel. The cooking class was great as well! Made tomato fritters, Greek salad and Moussaka. Got baklava for dessert at the end.

Angello plus the wineries/food is a must!
Don_C, Oct 2021
Visited 3 wineries, the first, a small winery was the best, tasting were inside a cave. Angello our guide for the day was a sommelier, therefore his knowledge of wine/food enhanced the experience along with his sense of humour. The second winery, Santos was very large and the experience was not as intimate. The last winery featured chef David who instructed us with hands on prep for 3 meals. Not much actual cooking. We ate the 3 dishes and tasted the local wine.

Well Done!
Jeffrey_P, Jul 2021
Our family of 8 people really enjoyed this experience. The host was knowledgeable and engaging throughout the day - where we visited a grape vineyard and three different wineries. The group cooking class was hosted by a very engaging chef who brought everyone into the experience. We went over time by 1 hour+, though our host did not seem to mind. Great experience!
Fun with a real wine maker/sommelier!
Paige_F, Jul 2021
LOVED Aggelos and the entire experience! We met so many fun people from all over the world and learned so much about Santorini wine-how to taste, smell, pair etc. and thoroughly enjoyed every minute!
Fun and Informative for Winos!

Angelo was great! Very fun, explained everything well and provided everyone with a great experience. Highly recommend!
My Big Fat Greek Wine and Food Tour
Justin_C, Jun 2021
On this tour, it occurred to me that I had never actually learnt about the intimate details behind the process of making wine- I only had vague ideas. From the jump, our guide Angelo was funny, informative and easygoing. We first looked at the unique Grecian way of growing grapes and how the climate impacts them, specifically in regards to flavor. Then the real fun began- the first tasting. Angelo taught us the proper ways to look at, smell and taste wine and also how to pair it with food, answering any questions we had about wine-meal combos. It was a thorough experience from thereon, and at the risk of sounding like a wine snob, my group and I left with a better appreciation for the art and culture behind the grape (one of us was even a level 1 sommelier!). Some of the highlights included the friendly local winemakers, the small doses of local history and the superb Greek Rosés. The rest of the day played out perfectly, from the second winery nestled into a cliff with stunning views of the caldera, to the exciting cooking class finale. We arrived at Anhydrous winery and restaurant at the end of our tour and were greeted by a lovely group of wine enthusiasts and chefs. They had everything prepared for us and, to our relief, the cooking class was rather more of a paint-by-numbers experience than a culinary test (dicing onions is surprisingly difficult!), punctuated by their own lovely wines. I won't spoil the menu, but you will certainly leave with a full belly, and even fuller heart. What I enjoyed most about this tour was that it captured the Greek sense of community. The reason I keep returning to Greece is because there are few places one feels more welcome and cherished so instantaneously. Sure, the incredible food, wine and scenery are top reasons as well, but it is the people there that truly shine. It was the dry wit and charming snark of our guide Angelo that disarmed us at the beginning of the day and created a safe space to be snobby about what we drank. Then it was the immediate hospitality of the local winery staff that made each stop on the trip a memorable one. And, lastly, it was the love that our teacher-chef had for food and for people that made our first collective foray into Greek cuisine so easy and fun. By far the best food/drink experience I have had in Greece. Do not hesitate to book.

Great time!

I would highly recommend this activity! It was a small class so you got to know everyone and enjoy each other’s companies. Our guide and cooking instructor were very informative and attentive. My wife and I had an amazing time!
