Description

Santorini is well known in Greece and all over the world for its long wine-making tradition. The island is covered with vineyards and its volcanic soil and unique climate gives a special flavor to the wines, making the production the second economy of the island. Our Wine Adventure Tour is specialized in wine & food activities, offering our guests a chance to explore the flavors & culture of Santorini. Your private driver/guide will bring you to 3 different types of wineries, granting you the most personalized wine experience, which includes sampling of 11 local wine varieties.

Visit one of the oldest wineries of Santorini built at 1947. In Venetsanos winery you’ll will learn about quality, enology and flavor alchemy. The Venetsanos family has a very long tradition in producing wine and has become the first industrial winery on the island. Taste 3 different varieties of wines (Nykteri, Anagalis & Mandilaria) and snacks, overlooking the magnificent caldera.

Follow a wine exhibition and taste in Estate Argyros. Based in Episkopi Gonia Santorini, the winery is surrounded by 42ha of vines, including some of the oldest vines on the island which are over 150 years old. Wine tasting includes 4 varieties of outstanding boutique wines based only on the indigenous varieties of Santorini, such as Assyrtiko, Aidani & Mavrotragano. The focus is on wines of great subtlety, character, balance and elegance with an uncompromising commitment to quality.

Your wine adventure will continue at the more private and less commercial location: a unique Art Center within the pumice rock - carved chambers of an old winery. In this old winery dating back to 1861, representative works of art are on display. Although Art Space Winery is small, it is a labour that shows preference to "quality" over ‘quantity'. You will have the opportunity to taste 4 glasses of amazing “local” wine, view the process of a Santorini organic farm and come close to contemporary Greek art and the course of artistic expression in Greece.

Choose your flexible departure and enjoy a memorable wine trip. The afternoon tour (4-5pm) includes the sunset from the magnificent balcony of Venetsanos winery.
