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.

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!

My bf and I had such a great experience on this wine tour. We didn't know alot about wine in general let alone about Santorini wine. Our group was made up of people with a wide spectrum of wine knowledge but we all had a great time together. I highly recommend it if you're in Santorini. Our guide Evan made the experience. He was very knowledgeable not only about Santorini wine but wine in general and I actually took away alot of what he taught us which says alot when you're drinking for a few hours. The pairing of wines with different food was amazing and really showed you how this can change the taste of the wine. Great tour!!!

This was a great tour! I highly recommend it.
Mike, our tour guide, was full of information and explained wine tasting in the best way possible. Our entire group under stood how to figure out how to pair wines as well as how to smell and taste.
All 3 wineries were unique and provided great samples of wine.
We were on the sunset tour which I also recommend as there was plenty of food.. no need for dinner.
Don't miss out on this experience.
