Choose from a morning or afternoon tour when booking, and prepare for pickup at your hotel or another nearby meeting point. If arriving by cruise, catch the cable car up to the Fira Bus Station, where your private driver and guide will be waiting. Travel in a luxury air-conditioned vehicle that can accommodate groups of up to 10, and take in the dramatic and changing island vistas on the way to the first of three family-run wineries.
Meet local winemakers and learn how Santorini's island climate, rich volcanic soil, and indigenous varietals combine to make unique and flavorful wines. With the help of your sommelier guide, explore the journey of the grape from vine to bottle and taste a total of 12 to 15 different red and white wines. Cap off your tasting experience with a light meal of local specialties like Santorinian salad, tomato fritters, and yellow split-pea fava.
If you like, purchase a bottle to take home before the return drive to your hotel (or the bus station for cruise ship passengers). Along the way, soak up spectacular views of Santorini’s terraced agricultural fields for a picturesque finish.
