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.

We were picked up at our hotel and taken to a local vineyard, then on the the wine tastings. Our guide Evan was so personable, and so knowledgeable about everything - we had such an amazing time! Even my husband, who is not really a wine lover, totally enjoyed himself! I cannot recommend Evan enough - he really made the tour more enjoyable.

Evan who was our host was very knowledgeable and friendly and gave us all some great wine tasting tips, first class host! we went to three wineries: Boutari, Venetsanos and Artemis Karamolegos - all three were great. The view at Venetsanos while we were sipping wine and eating snacks was to die for and could happily have spent all day there. Evan came out with a cake with a candle at the final winery which was a lovely touch as it was my partner's 50th that day. Would definitely do again

Would recommend to anyone on Santorini that has the time, the wineries were all pretty good with a range of different types of wine mainly white with snack pairings. The best part the entire tour was the passionate tour guide who actually had a Phd. in viticulture!

This tour was great. Our guide Denis really knew his wine and offered us some great tips to further our wine knowledge in the future. The last winery had breath taking views of the caldera and a nice little snack. Would definitely recommend to anyone who likes wine.

Thought the evening was excellent. Elias was knowledgable and humorous. I learned a great deal of info about pairing wines with foods. And speaking of food, the evening treats at sunset were very tasty. Also enjoyed the company of the other participants. Just fun people. My only recommendation, an extra bottle of red would be nice. I know Santorini is known for their whites but a little more variety would be nice. I'd do it again if I were in Santorini.

Perfect, perfect, perfect. Our guide, Dennis was a sommelier who gave us a wonderful tour of 3 vineyards. He was fun and knowledgeable about the varietals on offer. This perfect afternoon ended at sunset on a terrace overlooking the Aegean with wine and tapas. I can say that you will wholeheartedly enjoy this experience!

This tour was absolutely amazing - we were on a very comfortable minibus with a total of 8 people - our guide was our driver and he was funny, knowledgeable, engaging, and passionate about the vineyards and wine culture in Santorini. The tour was not at all pretentious but instead appealed to anyone wanting to learn more about wine, have fun with new friends, and enjoy the stunning scenery on Santorini. We tried A LOT of wine and at no point did anyone try to sell us anything. The sunset view at the end was breathtaking. I would wholeheartedly recommend this trip and absolutely book it again.
