Itinerary

Begin your experience with a pickup from your Santorini hotel and make your first stop at the fascinating archaeological site of Akrotiri, an ancient Minoan Bronze Age settlement that was destroyed and buried by a major volcanic eruption some 3,600 years ago.

Stroll around the semi-crumbled, multi-storied buildings with your archaeology-expert guide, and view the frescoes, pottery and other relics as you hear how life would have been here centuries ago.

Of particular interest is the ingenious drainage system that testifies to the sophistication of the engineers of the time. Many speculate that this timeworn site is home to the remains of Atlantis, a mythical city that was described by Greek philosopher Plato. Santorini’s long history of winemaking is evidenced in some of Akrotiri’s remains, providing the perfect cue for your next round of visits — to three of the island’s traditional wineries
.
Admire the ambience of the vineyards as you travel to each of the wineries, and taste a total of 12 wines across your three visits.
Wines have been made on the island for more than 4,000 years, and are renowned for their delightful crispness and high acidity, both resulting from Santorini’s aspa — the island’s unique, volcanic soil.

Enjoy a cellar tour at each winery and learn about the different winemaking processes. Hear how the grapes are grown in baskets near the ground rather than on trellises to capture maximum moisture from the island’s minimal rainfall.
Your 12 tasting wines will include favored varietals such as nykteri, vinsanto and assyrtiko and be paired with local goodies such as cheese and snacks to balance out their tastes.

Finally, end your tour with a drop-off back at your hotel after a fun, educational and flavorful day.

Itinerary

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.

Walk with your guide around one of the estate’s volcanic vineyards while savoring wine made from grapes such as the indigenous Assyrtiko that produces some of the most crisp and seductively sweet wine in the Mediterranean.

Sip on up to 12 different varietals of Santorini’s wine, including the sublime local types of Vinsanto and Nykteri(night-wine) while hearing about the island’s unique winemaking traditions that exist for centuries.
