Why we included this experience:

An exquisite tour of the Santorini vineyards, a small but prestigious part of the Greek wine industry. Visit a group of wineries accompanied by your sommelier guide, and taste the finest this island has to offer.

Experience description

The picturesque island of Santorini was formed by a volcanic eruption around 1600BC, which explains the intense fertility of the soil here. You’ll visit vineyards that date back centuries, meet the producers, and learn about their methods. At each of three stops, you’ll be invited to taste up to five different wines, with a variety of fresh Greek cheeses to match. Along the way, you’ll see much of the coastal and inland scenery that makes Santorini such a paradise for visitors.

Santorini’s principle grape is the Assyrtiko, used in the well-known dessert wine Vinsanto. The vines here need to be hardy, because although the soil is mineral-rich, it is a hot, dry climate they must survive in. White wines are also popular, but are produced on a fraction of the scale in, say, France or South Africa. You’ll learn about the indigenous grape varieties, the realities of life as a wine producer on Santorini, and of course develop a firm appreciation of the talents these people have in producing wines of such excellent character and quality.
