Enjoy the best of Santorini’s gastronomy with this private tour. This 5-hour private trek shows you the best in food and wine culture that Santorini has to offer. Explore two family estate wineries, learn about the wine production and grape varieties, and taste both white and red wines. Visit a local village where you will enjoy lunch with local ingredients and produce, using recipes passed from one generation to another.
Meet your English-speaking escort at your hotel or port in the morning for a 5-hour tour. Drive through the Santorini vineyards on your way to visit two of Santorini's traditional wineries. In each winery, learn of the local viticulture, the wine making process, and taste the different wine varieties.
The island of Santorini is most famously known for its indigenous white grape varieties Assyrtiko, Athiri and Aidani, though some wines made from international varieties as well as indigenous red grapes are found. Many of the roots found on the vines on Santorini are centuries old. The local grape growers use a unique bush-training system, known as koulara, to grow the grapes. As the vines grow, they are woven into baskets with the grapes facing toward the inside of the ring.
After the wineries, proceed to a local village, and join a three-course delicious Santorini-styled menu cooked in the traditional way using local products, accompanied by the local wine. The dazzling light and the Aegean breeze, combined with the island’s fertile volcanic soil, nurture the local agricultural products, endowing them with top quality and a unique taste.
This tour is ideal for foodies, adventure types, wine lovers, and anyone who wants to try a complete gastronomic experience in Santorini.
