The rich soil, lack of rainfall, tropical climate and 3,000-years of grape production has made Santorini a haven for wine drinkers. If you enjoy a few glasses with friends, then this Grecian beauty is worth a look in.
Typical wines from this region include Asyrtico, Nychteri and Vinsanto and there are plenty of wineries to enjoy tours of. You can combine this with cookery classes or a few days on the beach… the choice is yours. Santo Wines is easily the most popular winery. With amazing views overlooking the Aegean Sea, you’ll be sampling greatness with every sip. Alternatively, swing by the Wine Museum that operates at Koutsogiannopoulos Volcan Wines. Nestled within a cave, the family owned business is now in its fourth generation of wine making and shows no sign of slowing down.
