WINE ADVENTURE TOUR
Santorini is well known in Greece and all over the world for its long wine-making tradition. The island is covered with vineyards and its volcanic soil and unique climate gives a special flavor to the wines, making the production the second economy of the island. Our Wine Adventure Tour is specialized in wine & food activities, offering our guests a chance to explore the flavors & culture of Santorini. Our private driver/guide will bring you to 3 different types of wineries the island holds, granting you the most personalized wine experience.
Visit one of the oldest wineries of Santorini built at 1947. In Venetsanos winery you’ll will learn about quality, enology and flavor alchemy. The Venetsanos family has a very long tradition in producing wine and became the first industrial winery on the island. Enjoy 3 different varieties of wine and snacks, overlooking the magnificent caldera such as: Nykteri white wine, Anagalis roze wine & Mandilaria red wine.
Follow a wine exhibition and taste in Gavalas Winery, where the most prized wines are produced. In the village of Megalochori, Gavalas family holds secrets into their production you will most want to discover. The Gavalas family has been exclusively engaged in the vinification of the indigenous varieties grown in Santorini, since the end of the 19th century. Wine tasting includes 3 of the best wines of Gavalas winery collection such as: Aidani white wine, Voudomato roze wine & Mavrotragano red wine.
Your tour will end at the more private and less commercial local farm winery in Akrotiri village. Explore Maria’s wine farm and the authentic Santorinian products her family still keeps, along with the island’s traditions on their small production. From the donkeys and the goats to the wine cellar, where you will not only taste 3 different family produced wines, but you will get to do the bottling and labeling yourselves.
