Wine tours on the island

Santorini is famous for its outstanding wine, especially Assyrtiko and Vinsanto, which stand out and can thrill the visitors.
The wineries are scattered in various parts of the island and most of them offer a guided tour. The tour describes the ripening process of local varieties, the peculiar vine pruning to be protected from the harsh weather and of course the Santorini wine history.
After the tour, visitors can taste the local wines, along with a “meze”.

“Meze” is usually appetizers that intervene between the wine tasting such as local cherry tomatoes, olives, cheese and tomato paste. Thus the saying “What grows together, goes together”!
