  • 4.5-hour Santorini wine tour, led by a wine-expert guide
  • Visit three wineries and enjoy a cellar tour of each as you learn about their wine
  • Walk around a volcanic vineyard and uncover the unique viticulture of Santorini
  • Sample up to 12 different wines including nykteri alongside local delicacies
  • Upgrade to a sunset tour for spectacular sunset views at the Venetsanos Winery and enjoy a plate of tapas during your final winery visit
  • Enjoy personalised attention on a small-group tour with a maximum of eight people
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 host, Angelo, was incredible. Very knowledgable, accommodating, and made the day fun. I learned a bit about wine that I didn’t know before and enjoyed the wines and snacks offered. Keep in mind, Santorini is largely whites and dessert wines.

This was a fabulous tour. We did the sunset tour and visited 3 wineries and tasted 12 wines. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and offered a cheese pairing as well. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who loves wine and wants to know about the Santorini wines.

I brought 13 people to Greece and this was one of several activities I planned. It was wonderful!! I loved that they picked us up and brought us back to our hotel. We went to 3 wineries and our guide was wonderful explaining how the grapes are grown (much different for our wine region) and how wine was originally made. He was very knowledgeable about the different wines and what paired well with them. The sunset at the third winerey was spectacular! This is a definite must do!!

I enjoyed very much this tour. The tour guide was exceptional. I would only reduce either the amount of wines or the wineries, because in the end you don't really remember which wine you enjoyed the most. As for the rest, amazing tour!

Dennis was an amazing instructor on Santorini Wines. A tour worth taking, if you want to learn. We visited 3 wineries, each so lovely.

This tour was amazing! Perfect for beginners. We learned a lot. Angelo is a really entertaining guide. We actually went without having breakfast but it wasn't a problem because the food pairings were more than enough. I highly recommend this tour.
