Santorini Wine Tour
Santorini have been celebrated for generations for their distinctive character, robust flavors, and world-class quality. Wine enthusiasts from around the world have chosen to come along on our Santorini wine tasting tours to experience the art and culture of this special place for themselves. A Santorini wine tour is the perfect opportunity to see the famous circular vineyards planted in rich volcanic soil. The native grape varietals are only one part of what gives Santorini wines their reputation. The art of winemaking has been preserved on Santorini for centuries and a special cuisine has grown up to perfectly complement these delightful beverages. Explore this heritage for yourself in a small group tour.
No need to worry about transportation. We’ll pick you up and return you to your hotel. On the Santorini Wine Tour, you will spend a full half day guided around the island. Along the way, you will visit locations well-known for their connection to Santorini wine and culinary culture as well as plenty of hideaways known only to the locals. Participants joining us for these small group Santorini wine tours will get to learn the history of winemaking on the island as well as lots of other valuable information that will increase the enjoyment of wines we will sample. Wine tasting is done with the help of an expert sommelier who will introduce the character and profile of each vintage.
