Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
We pickup guests from all Santorini hotels & Airbnb's.
If hotel is inaccessible by car due to restrictions, pickup will be held from a nearby location within short walking distance.
Cruise ship travelers: Meeting point is the "HERTZ" rental car company in Fira town, near the top of the cable car.

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.
  • Confirmation will be received at time of booking
  • Hotel pick-ups will be done to the closest accessible areas; parts of Santorini are in a slope and can't be accessed by vehicles

  • The wines served during the tour are mainly whites and dessert wines, as these are the kind of wines the island of Santorini produces.This is a gentle note for guests that only drink red wine.

An outstanding experience, and great customer service

Our hotel was a bit off the normal path, so in order to keep their pledge of hotel pickup/drop-off, and so as not to inconvenience the rest of the group due to our remoteness, the company sent a separate vehicle to collect us at the beginning. We then linked up with the remainder of the group at the first stop. At the end, the same vehicle/driver met us again, and took my wife and I back to our hotel. Wow! That's service/consideration. On top of that, we can't speak highly enough of our guide...Dora. She was charming, exceedingly knowledgeable, and her English is spotless. We chose the sunset tour, and are so glad we did. The views from the final stop (Santo Wines) are amazing. If you enjoy wines, are a foodie, and looking to have a great few hours in Santorini; then this tour is a must-do for you.

My husband and I are wine sommeliers and really did not have big expectations for this trip; but Nikos was an excellent tour guide and the three wineries selected were great examples of Greek wine. Don't shy away from this just because you think Greek wine is not very good - there were some fabulous examples of GOOD WINE this in the tour. The history back drop of the wineries and the views outside the messy old town area were a real treat!

Great option for a rainy or very windy day on Santorini

The host/guide Nickos was just wonderful. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating. This was the most pleasant and relaxing afternoon. We visited three wineries. There was so much wine, they just keep pouring wine very generously. There is also plenty of small food plates. You will not be hungry. The sunset stop at the last winery is probably beautiful, but we had a cloud day. Would definitely recommend.

Our tour was informative, fun, and relaxing. The 3 wineries all had something unique about them with enough food given on this tour to keep you full. We didnt feel rushed visiting these 3 wineries and have max 12 people made it intimate and personal. Antonio was very knowledgeable, professional and fun. I recommend this tour for a wonderful half day tour.

The best winery tour

My friend and I (both wine lovers) joined the Santorini winery tour. Our guide Giannis was very knowledgeable, professional and friendly!! We visited three locations and tried 12 different kinds of wines. He explained the history of Santorini winery, how to see the wine colors, what bites (cheese, chocolate etc) is the best combination with each wine etc... We enjoyed the tour so much and had such a great memory in Santorini. Highly recommended!! Thank you!

This was our favorite activity we did in Santorini!! The wines were all AMAZING!! There were so many delicious dry whites and amazing rose wines. You explore 3 wineries and get to taste many different wines. The food pairings bring out the flavors in the wines, which is something I have never experienced before! Our tour guide was so knowledgeable, friendly, and made the whole experience unforgettable. I cannot recommend this enough!
