Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Sip your way around Santorini on a private morning or sunset wine tour, visiting 3 traditional wineries dotted across the picturesque island.

    Learn about the Assyrtiko local grape type and chat with your private guide about the history of wine production on the island that exists for centuries. Hear about Santorini’s island viticulture on the volcanic soils and sample up to 12 different varietals of the island's award-winning volcanic wines. Enjoy private cellar tours at each of the wineries and savor local snacks alongside wine tastings, on a 5-Hour private wine tour of the Santorini’s countryside.

    Morning Tour: 

    Visit Boutari Winery, an estate considered as a winemaking institution in Santorini. Learn about its winemaking heritage, and visit the private cellars to see where its award-winning produce is left to ferment and mature. Continue to the tasting room to sample four glasses of wine, and enjoy a platter of local cheese, olives, tomatoes and bread, too. As you sip and savor, learn about the wine from the estate’s own wine-expert guide. 

    Your second visit is to Gravalas Winery, a traditional Greek wine cellar that dates back to the mid-19th century. Explore the old cellars, seeing the huge vinsanto (dessert wine) barrels, and then visit the foot-stomping room where grapes are still crushed by foot! In the winery’s quaint backyard, enjoy another wine tasting and sample up to four glasses of wine made with regional grapes such as assyrtiko and nykteri. 

    Then, head towards the flat side of the island for the final wine tasting — this time on an acclaimed estate! The wine produced at Argyros Estate is matured on steel vats and french oak casks, combining the traditional Santorini techniques with the French rules of modern wine-making. The results are extraordinary crisp wines, well acclaimed by international experts. 

    Sunset Tour: 

    After visits to Argyros Estate and Gravalas wineries, head straight to Venetsanos Winery for a wine tasting with sunset views. Take a seat in the tasting area, and enjoy a glass of sparkling wine before finishing on a high note — with a glass of the winery’s legendary vinsanto wine. 

     Highlights:
    • 5-Hour private Santorini wine tour, led by a wine-expert guide/ sommelier.
    • Visit three of the island’s traditional wineries and learn about Santorini’s winemaking.
    • Taste 12 different varietals of Santorini wine, from crisp Assyrtiko’s to sublime sweet “Vinsanto” wines.

    • Admire the charming landscape of the countryside filled with scenic villages and rolling hills.
    • Start your tour at daytime or afternoon time, to enjoy the sunset of Santorini during your tour.
