Owner description: Venetsanos winery is located right above the port of Athinios, overlooking the magnificent caldera of Santorini. The winery was designed by the innovator George Venetsanos in 1947. Firstly operated in 1949 and was the first industrial winery on the island. It has a very rich history, unique architecture and amazing views. Visit our Cafe, the Wine Tasting area, our shop or hire our terraces for a private event or Wedding!

We knew Venetsanos wine from before and being an enthusiast of Asyrtiko's variety, it was one of the places we wanted to visit in Santorini and we are very happy we did! The wine tasting there is a unique experience, as it can be combined with unbelievably tasty food pairing and a breathtaking view to Caldera, Oia and Fira! Maria was very kind and helpful and explained us in detail all the questions we had about the wine we were tasting.

This winery is beautiful. The setting is perfect and wonderful views. The best bottle of wine we have had so far - their rose. If you love wine, make this a must see on your trip to santorini.

We loved Venetsanos 2 years ago
Not as much this year as more people have discovered it.

We did the wine tasting as before with the 5 wines being described by Maria. All very nice with some cheese and rusks and tomato paste and fava.

Beautiful setting.

We then went up to the sunset terrace and ordered a bottle of Rose wine to enjoy whilst watching the sunset.

As the sun began to set lots of people came forward to take photos and stood directly in front of our table blocking our view. I had to ask one lady to move. This didn’t happen 2 years ago and we visited in July back then, obviously has become more popular

Location is fantastic, I strongly suggest coming here to enjoy a nice glass of wine & cheese and the beautiful sunset views. Maria is very passionate and gave great details about the different wine offerings.
