Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
We pickup guests from all Santorini hotels & Airbnb's.
If hotel is inaccessible by car due to restrictions, pickup will be held from a nearby location within short walking distance.
Cruise ship travelers: Meeting point is the "HERTZ" rental car company in Fira town, near the top of the cable car.

Both the day and sunset tour include hotel pickup and drop-off. The wineries you visit are dependent on the tour you choose.

Day Tour: (April 1 – November 15)Meet your guide and relax on the journey to the island’s wine estates. Admire the countryside as you go, and chat with your guide about winemaking in Santorini and the area’s unique viticulture.

With its volcanic aspa soil, Santorini is able to produce wine that is rich in minerals with light-flavored notes. The island’s grapes are grown in baskets that are set close to the soil — an act that helps moisture from rain to be retained.

Tour the cellars of each wine estate, and follow the production process through from harvesting the grapes through to maturing the wine. Walk with your guide around one of the estate’s volcanic vineyards, and sip on up to 12 different varietals of the island wine, including local vinsanto and assyrtiko. Nibbles such as olives, bread and cheese are also included.

Sunset Tour: (May 15 – September 30)Enjoy the tour as described above, but arrive at your last wine estate, the renowned Venetsanos Winery in time to watch the sun set. Make your way to the open terrace for an alfresco wine tasting and a plate of tapas with views of the Santorini caldera set against the Aegean Sea before you return to your hotel.

This tour was amazing. I have taken several wine tours in the US and a few in other places, but this by far was the best. Angelou was so knowledgeable, I really feel like I learned a lot about wine. It is mostly white wine, as that's what's grown in the region, and it's really some of the best white wine I've ever had.

Very nice tour. It took longer than expected but that is because there were a lot of pickups on our tour. We tried at least 15 different types of wine and also learned some fun facts about the island.

Great tour with tour guide Yiannis. We loved it all, Yiannis was very knowledgable and enthusiastic; the wineries were all good and the wine was delicious. The sunset view with the tapas was the icing on the cake.

We loved this tour! Our pickup from very near our hotel was prompt, we picked up one other couple on the way, and another van met us with the other 1/2 of our tour (super smart to split up pickup!). We learned about the local grape growing process and then went to 3 wineries. The tastings were very well done and the pours were more than generous. The other travelers we met were great as well. All in all for those looking for a wine experience in Santorini we would definitely recommend!!

The wine tour completely exceeded my expectations! We were given very generous samples of wine (full glasses in some cases). The food pairings were delicious and the portions were large. I didn’t have to eat dinner that night. The sunset at Santos Winery was stunning! Our guide, Dora, was absolutely amazing. She was so knowledgeable and fun. We were part of a small group of 8 and by the last winery we were all friends and exchanged numbers! Definitely book this tour!

Yiannis, our wine tasting guide and driver was very knowledgeable about not only the wines that we tasted at the three wineries That we visited, but wines all over the world. He also provided a lot of general historical background about Santorini and was an excellent host and driver.

Totally worth the money. Angelo was fabulous - he has a great snob-free attitude- and totally went with the energy of our fun-loving group. You’ll learn a lot about winemaking in Santorini, get to try some really great wines, plus get taken to some stunning tasting locations. Loads of snacks and plenty of water to soak it up. Highlight of our trip!

This Tour was my favorite one in all Santorini, This trip was full of knowledge and just fun. I went as a solo traveler but sure will recommend to couples to do it. The best part was the group and how everyone could socialize with each other. Seeing the sunset at Santos Winery was just an amazing experience.
