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.

Sunset Tour: (May 15 – September 30)
Enjoy the tour as described above, but arrive at your last wine estate, the renowned Venetsanos Winery in time to watch the sun set. Make your way to the open terrace for an alfresco wine tasting and a plate of tapas with views of the Santorini caldera set against the Aegean Sea before you return to your hotel.

Our wine tour was absolutely wonderful!! We learned so, so much about wine making in Santorini and in general! and about the different tastes of Santorini wines. Our tour guide, Evangelos, was nothing short of incredible!! He was so much fun, so passionate, so interesting, so knowledgeable and so kind. Truly an amazing person he knew how to keep us engaged as a group and it was great to do a blind taste test with everyone to see what kind of flavors/notes we would pick up. I would highly recommend doing this tour to anyone who goes to Santorini!

This has to be one of my top highlights whilst in Santorini! This was a birthday surprise for my best friend and she loved it too!! Our guide Illios (I think, not good with names) was excellent! So informative and encouraged us to really get involved! Do the sunset tour, you will not regret it!!

A great wine tour made even better by our tour guide Michael who was outstanding! Not only knowledgeable, but he explained which wines pair well with which foods. We visited three wineries, with the last one being unbelievable as it sits atop the cliffs and overlooks the bay/sea. It was a great way to start our three days in Santorini.

An unreal day out with great wines and more food than required as food 'matching' at 2 of the 3 Wineries was substantial!

Evan was a fantastic host for the day sharing his knowledge of wine making and professional wine tasting with a very keen group as well as just enjoying the day.

I never thought a wine tour in Greece would be so educational and showcase such great wines.

A must tour to see some different parts of the island, try some great food and outstanding wine unique to Santorini...

Evan was an incredible tour guide and wine expert. My hubby is quite the connoisseur, having toured many wineries and purchasing private label wines for a former company. But even my husband learned new things during our time with Evan. And, on top of it all, the wine was good. : Great tour, definitely would recommend it.

This tour was relaxing, fun and informative! We had an excellent guide who went through how wine is uniquely made on the island and who taught the group how to properly taste wine. It included 12 wine tastings, snacks and a trip to the brewery as a bonus. It was a great value for wine lovers!
