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 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.

Our experience was beyond our expectations. Our tour guide Angelo was the best. Angelo was very professional, fun, kind, and just an all around excellent tour guide. If you go you must ask for him! He made the experience memorable for a lifetime. He spoke very well in English and we became friends! 12/10! Now the wine was out of the world and you got generous amounts as well!

Great wine tour! We were suspect about doing a tour because it was our honeymoon and we didn't want huge lessons on the vineyards. However, this was the perfect amount of education and fun! The places were great and the last vineyard had the most beautiful sunset! Highly recommend

This was a really fun experience. The tour guide Aggelos really made the tour exceptional. He was very funny and animated but also very informative about the wines. I don't think the tour would have been as good with a different tour guide. The sunset view from Santo Winery was beautiful. Overall a very good experience.
